Johns Creek holds millage rate hearings for 2021

July 29, 2021

The City of Johns Creek is currently in the process of establishing its 2021 millage rate.  The city, incorporated on December 1, 2006, has published its five-year history of its tax digest, property revenues and millage rate.

In 2020 the Johns Creek City Council adopted a final millage rate of 3.986. This represented an increase of 0.43 mills from the adopted 2019 rate of 3.552.

Before setting the 2021 millage rate, Georgia law requires a public hearing to be held to allow the public an opportunity to provide comment on the subject.

The initial public hearing will be held at a special called meeting on Monday, Aug. 9, 2021 at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall. Additional public hearings on this proposed tax increase will be held on Monday, Aug. 16, 2021 at 11 a.m. and another on Monday, August 16, 2021 at 7 p.m. 

Anticipated adoption of the final millage rate for 2021 will take place Monday, Aug. 16, 2020 at the City Council Meeting at 7 p.m.

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.

For additional information on the proposed 2021 millage rate please visit the city website.

NOTICE

The City of Johns Creek has tentatively adopted a millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 2.57%. All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearing on this tax increase to be held at the Johns Creek City Hall Council Chambers located at 11360 Lakefield Drive, Johns Creek, Georgia on August 9, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. Additional public hearings on this proposed tax increase will be held on August 16, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. at the same location. Residents are invited to e-mail comments to public.comment@johnscreekga.gov.
 
This tentative increase will retain the current millage rate of 3.986, an increase of 0.100 mills above the rollback rate. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 3.886 mills (the rollback rate). The proposed annual increase for a home with a fair market value of $300,000 is approximately $11 and the proposed annual increase for a non-homestead property would be $12.
 
Pursuant to the requirements of O.C.G.A. § 48-5-32, the City does hereby publish the following presentation of the current year’s tax digest and levy, along with the history of the tax digest and levy for the past five years.
