The City of Johns Creek is currently in the process of establishing its 2022 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 2021 the Johns Creek City Council adopted a final millage rate of 3.986 which represented a preservation of the millage rate set in 2020. Before setting the 2022 millage rate, Georgia law requires a public hearing to be held to allow the public an opportunity to provide comment on the subject.
The City has scheduled three Public Hearings and all residents are invited to attend and participate. There will be Public Hearings on the proposed 2022 millage rate on July 25, 2022 at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. All Public Hearings and Council Meetings will be held in the Council Chambers located at 11360 Lakefield Drive in Johns Creek, GA 30097.
The third Public Hearing and anticipated adoption of the final millage rate for 2022 will take place during the regularly scheduled City Council Meeting at 7 p.m. on Aug. 15, 2022.
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 tentatively adopted a millage rate, which will require an increase in property taxes by 6.12%. 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 July 25, 2022 at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. An Additional public hearing on this proposed tax increase will be held on Aug. 15, 2022 at 7 p.m. at the same location. Residents are invited to e-mail comments to email@example.com
This tentative increase will retain the current millage rate of 3.986, an increase of 0.230 mills above the rollback rate. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate would be no more than 3.756 mills (the rollback rate). The proposed annual increase for a home with a fair market value of $300,000 is approximately $26 and the proposed annual increase for a non-homestead property would be $28.
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.
