PRESS RELEASE ANNOUNCING A PROPOSED PROPERTY TAX INCREASE

The Washington County Board of Commissioners today announces its intention to increase 2015 property taxes. The levy this year will increase taxes by 11.5 % over the rollback millage rate.
Please note that this increase applies only to the county M & O portion of your tax bill so the overall tax increase will be 3.5% of your tax bill.
The entire proposed increase in taxes will be used to subsidize the financial operations of our local hospital, Washington County Regional Medical Center. The situation at the Hospital was explained during several recent public meetings.
All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this tax increase to be held at the Washington County Board of Commissioners Board Room, 119 Jones Street, Sandersville, GA on August 27, 2015 at 9:00am and 6:00pm and on September 4, 2015 at 9:00am. A called Board of Commissioner meeting will immediately follow to amend the budget and adopt the 2015 mill rate.

NOTICE OF PROPERTY TAX INCREASE

The Washington County Board of Commissioners has tentatively adopted a millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 11.50 percent.
All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearing on this tax increase to be held at the Commissioner’s Board Room, 119 Jones Street, Sandersville, GA on August 27, 2015 at 9:00 am and 6:00 pm.
Times and places of additional public hearings on this tax increase are at the Commissioner’s Board Room, 119 Jones Street, Sandersville, GA on September 4, 2015 at 9:00 am.
This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 9.698 mills, an increase of 1 mill. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 8.698 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $100,000 is approximately $40 and the proposed tax increase for the non-homestead property with a fair market value of $75,000 is approximately $30.
The entire proposed increase in taxes will be used to subsidize the financial operations of our local hospital, Washington County Regional Medical Center. The situation at the Hospital was explained during recent public meetings.
Please note that this increase applies only to the county M & O portion of your tax bill so the overall tax increase will be 3.5% of your overall tax bill.
