Tax Increase Hearings Set

The Oconee County Board of Education has tentatively adopted a millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes of 4.63 percent.

All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearing on this tax increase to be held in the Board Meeting Room at the Superintendent’s Office (34 School Street in Watkinsville) on July 30, 2020 at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

The time and place of an additional public hearing on this tax increase is in the Board Meeting Room at the Superintendent’s Office (34 School Street in Watkinsville) on August 10, 2020 at 5 p.m.

This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 16.50 mills, an increase of 0.730 mill. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 15.770 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $350,000 is approximately $100.74, and the proposed tax increase for nonhomestead property with a fair market value of $350,000 is approximately $102.20.
