First public hearings for tax hike Aug. 8
The City of Sylvania Council has announced its intention to increase the 2017 property taxes it will levy this year by 15.76 percent over the rollback millage rate.
The budget adopted by the City of Sylvania Council requires a millage rate higher than the rollback millage rate, therefore the City of Sylvania Council will set a final millage rate, Georgia law requires three public hearings to be held to allow the public 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 City of Sylvania City Hall Council Chambers, 104 South Main Street, in Sylvania on Tuesday, Aug. 8, at 11:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. and on Tuesday, Aug. 15, at 6 p.m.
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 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.
Then 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.
