taxesThe City of Johns Creek is currently in the process of establishing its 2017 millage rate.  The City, incorporated in December 1, 2006 has published its five-year history of its tax digest, property revenues and millage rate.

Before the City of Johns Creek sets the final millage rate for 2017, Georgia law requires public hearings to be held to allow the public an opportunity to express their opinions. 
 
All concerned citizens are invited to attend and participate in the public hearings which will be held at Johns Creek City Hall, Council Chambers located at 12000 Findley Road, Suite 300, Johns Creek, Georgia 30097 at the following dates and times:
  • First Public Hearing: Monday, Sept. 11, 2017 at 8 p.m. *This meeting has been rescheduled to Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017 at 8 p.m.*
  • Second Public Hearing: Monday, Sept. 25, 2017 at 11:30 a.m.
  • Third Public Hearing: Monday, Sept. 25, 2017 at 6:30 p.m.
Action to adopt the final millage rate for 2017 is scheduled to take place during the Council Meeting on Monday, Sept. 25, 2017, which begins at 7 p.m. at 12000 Findley Road, Suite 300, Johns Creek, Georgia 30097.
 
Each year, the Board of Tax Assessors is required to review the assessed value of taxable property in the County.  When the trends of prices on properties that have recently sold in the County indicate there has been an increase in the fair market value of any specific property, the Board of Tax Assessors is required by law to re-determine the value of such property and adjust the assessment. This is called a reassessment.
 
The City of Johns Creek has incurred negative reassessments and the effect is a 0.23% decrease for 2017.
