The Douglas County Board of Education plans to roll back the millage rate for the fourth consecutive year, from 19.75 to 19.7. 

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. 

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 years digest that last year’s millage rate would have produced had no re‐assessments occurred.

The budget adopted by the Douglas County Board of Education requires that a millage rate higher than the rollback millage rate, therefore, before the Douglas County Board of Education 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 Douglas County Board of Education Administration Building, 9030 Highway 5, Douglasville, Ga. 30134 on August 6, 2018 at 6:00 p.m., August 20, 2018 at 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
