July 30 Millage Hearing

Newton BOE to Hold Public Hearing on Millage Rate
Posted on 07/22/2019

The Newton County Board of Education has tentatively adopted an M&O millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 6.91%. 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 30, 2019 at 6:30 p.m.

This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 20.00 mills, an increase of 1.292 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 18.708 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $175,000 is approximately $85.27 and the
proposed tax increase for nonhomestead property with a fair market value of $150,000 is approximately $77.52.
