BLUE RIDGE, Ga – Two public hearings concerning the 2021 millage rate will be held tomorrow at the Fannin County Courthouse in the Jury Assembly Room.
The first public hearing will take place at 11:30 a.m. and the second at 6 p.m.
The county portion of the millage rate is remaining the same as last year at 3.862 mills. By not accepting the rollback rate, the commission was required to advertise the millage rate as a tax increase. The notice concerning the property tax increase indicated:
“A home with a fair market value of $200,000 is $6.96 and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $150,000 is approximately $5.22.”
However, Fannin County School Board is lowering their millage rate to 10.159 from 10.391 mills. So, Fannin County citizens will see an overall reduction in the millage rate from 14.253 to 14.021.
