PRESS RELEASE

The Seminole County Board of Commissioners today announces its intention to increase the 2019 property taxes it will levy this year by 6.71 percent over the rollback millage rate.

  • Each year, the board of tax assessors is required to review the assessed value for property tax purposes of taxable property in the county. When the trend of prices on properties that have recently sold in the county indicate there has been an increase or decrease in the fair market value of any specific property, the board of tax assessors is required by law to re-determine the value of such property and adjust the assessment. This is called a reassessment. Additional decreases in property values have occurred as a result of the extensive damage caused by Hurricane Michael.

When the total digest of taxable property is prepared, Georgia law requires that a rollback millage rate must be computed that will produce the same total revenue on the current year's digest that last year's millage rate would have produced had no reassessments occurred.

The budget adopted by the Seminole County Board of Commissioners requires a millage rate higher than the rollback millage rate; therefore, before the Seminole County Board of Commissioners may set a final millage rate, Georgia law requires three public hearings to be held to allow the public an opportunity to express their opinions on the increase.

All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this tax increase to be held at the Seminole County Courthouse, Superior Courtroom, 200 S. Knox Avenue, Donalsonville, Georgia on October 10, 2019 at 10:00 A.M. and 6:00 P.M. and on October 21, 2019 at 6:00 P.M.

NOTICE OF PROPERTY TAX INCREASE

The SEMINOLE COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS has tentatively adopted a 2019 millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 6.71 percent.

All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this tax increase to be held at the Seminole County Courthouse Superior Courtroom located at 200 South Knox Avenue, Donalsonville, GA on Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 10:00 A.M. and 6:00 P.M.

Time and place of additional public hearing on this tax increase is at the Seminole County Courthouse Superior Courtroom located at 200 South Knox Avenue, Donalsonville, GA on Monday, October 21, 2019 at 6:00 P.M.

This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 15.893 mills, an increase of 1.000 mill. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 14.893 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of S100,000 is approximately $38.00 and the proposed tax increase for nonhomestead property with a fair market value of $300,000 is approximately $120.00.
