The White County Board of Commissioners works diligently to keep White County’s millage rate as low as possible while providing the necessary services to the ever-growing population and want to stress that their intent is to set a millage at the lowest rate possible in order to provide quality services to those we serve.
Any millage rate over the rollback rate of 9.734 would have been considered a millage increase over the 2017 millage rate of 9.998.
All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this tax increase to be held at the County Administration Building, 1235 Helen Hwy. Cleveland, Georgia on Thursday, July 19, 2018 at 8:00 a.m. and Thursday, July 19, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. and Monday, July 30, 2018 at 4:30 p.m.
NOTICE OF PROPERTY TAX INCREASE
The White County Board of Commissioners announces the intent to increase 2018 property taxes by 15.57%
