Seminole County Public Library NOTICE OF PROPERTY TAX INCREASE

posted Sep 13, 2017, 8:21 AM by Jeff Hatcher

The Seminole County Public Library has tentatively adopted a millage rate which will increase the millage rate to .769.  This rate is an increase of 8.6% over the rollback rate. 
Three tax hearings are required as the Public Library is requesting an increase in taxes.  
All concerned citizens are invited to attend the three public hearings on this tax increase to be held at:
Seminole County Public Library’s Martin Room on September 21, 2017 at 10:00 AM
Seminole County Public Library’s Martin Room on September 21, 2017 at 6:30 PM
Seminole County Public Library’s Martin Room on September 28, 2017 at 2:00 PM
The Library is located on 103 West 4th Street in Donalsonville, Georgia.
The tentative increase will result in a millage rate of .769, an increase of .061 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than .708 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $100,000 is approximately $2.32, and the proposed tax increase for a non-homestead property with a fair market value of $300,000 is approximately $7.32.
