The Newton County Board of Education has tentatively adopted an M&O millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 5.31%. All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearing on this tax increase to be held in the Board Room at the Newton County Board of Education Administrative Offices, 2109 Newton Drive, Covington, Georgia, on July 9, 2015 at 6:00 PM.

This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 20.00 mills, an increase of 1.009 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 18.991 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $125,000 is approximately $46.41 and the proposed tax increase for nonhomestead property with a fair market value of $100,000 is approximately $40.36.
