The Dougherty County Board of Commissioners has tentatively adopted a millage rate, which will require an increase in property taxes by .35 % over the rollback millage rate for Countywide Tax Digest.
All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearing on this tax increase to be held at the Government Center in Room 100, 222 Pine Avenue, Albany, Georgia
This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 15.569 mills, an increase of .055 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 15.514. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $100,000 is approximately $2.09 and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $150,000 is approximately $3.30.
