July 7, 2022 ‐‐ The City of Richmond Hill City Council today announces its intention to increase the 2022 property taxes it will levy this year by 8.31 percent over the rollback millage rate.
When the total digest of taxable property is prepared, Georgia law requires a rollback millage rate must be computed that will produce the same total revenue on the current year’s digest that last year’s millage rate would have produced had no reassessments occurred.
The City’s budget requires a millage rate higher than the rollback millage rate. Therefore, before the Richmond Hill City Council may set a final millage rate, Georgia law requires three public hearings to be held to allow the public an opportunity to express their opinions on the increase.
All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this tax increase to be held at the Henderson Room at City Hall, 40 Richard Davis Drive, Richmond Hill, Georgia on July 21, 2022 at 11:00 AM and 6:00 PM and Council Chambers, 40 Richard Davis Drive, Richmond Hill, Georgia on August 2, 2022 at 7:00 PM.
