Carroll County Schools Announce Proposed Property Tax Increase

The Carroll County Board of Education today announces its intention to increase the 2022
property taxes it will levy this year by 3.71 percentage 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 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 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 Carroll County Board of Education requires a millage rate higher
than the rollback millage rate; therefore, before the Carroll 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
Carroll County Board of Education Board Room, 164 Independence Drive, Carrollton, GA 30116
on Thursday, August 4, 2022 at 12:00 p.m. and on Monday, August 15, 2022 at 5:30 p.m., and at the Carroll County Board of Education Performing Arts Center, 775 Old Newnan Road, Carrollton, GA 30116 on Thursday, August 18, 2022 at 6:30 p.m.
