Notice of Property Tax Increase

The Troup County Board of Education has tentatively adopted a 2020 millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 5.14 percent.

 

All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearing on this tax increase to be held at the   Administrative Services Center Board Room, 100 North Davis Road Building C, LaGrange, GA on July 9, 2020 at 10:00 A.M. and 6:00 P.M.

 

Time and place of additional public hearing on this tax increase is at the Administrative Services Center Board Room, 100 North Davis Road Building C, LaGrange, GA on July 16, 2020 at 5:00 P.M.
 

This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 18.850 mills, an increase of 0.922 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 17.928 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $125,000 is approximately $44.26 and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $125,000 is approximately $46.10.

Notice of Millage Rate Hearing - TCSS is NOT Requesting an Increase in 2020 Millage Rates

The Troup County Board of Education is not proposing an increase to the current millage rate of 18.85.  The millage rate last year was 18.85, and the millage rate being proposed for this year is also 18.85.  If the assessed value of your existing real property remains the same as the previous year, then you will see no change in taxes for school purposes.  The language used in an advertisement with the Troup County News and on troup.or. (above) is a state requirement and cannot be altered.  If you have questions, please feel free to email info@troup.org (mail to:info@troup.org) or attend one of the public hearings.
