NOTICE OF PROPERTY TAX INCREASE – GENERAL FUND

In compliance with the Taxpayer's Bill of Rights state law, the Cobb County School District announces it has tentatively adopted a general fund millage rate of 18.90 mills.  

The Cobb County Board of Tax Assessors assesses all county property in compliance with state law.  If property is reassessed upward, then the Cobb County School District will see an increase in tax revenue. The additional revenue will be applied toward the higher cost of student instruction due to enrollment growth, and to ease budget constraints caused by reductions in state revenue.  

To collect the same revenue as last year and avoid an increase in taxes of 7.48%, the millage rate would have to be decreased to 17.584 mills, defined as the “roll-back” rate described in the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights. In accordance with Georgia Law, the Cobb County Board of Education must conduct 3 public hearings to receive public comments concerning this issue if it does not adopt the roll-back millage rate.

 All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearing to be held: 

  • Wednesday, July 11, 2018
  • 11:00 AM – Session 1
  • Boardroom - 514 Glover Street, Marietta, GA, 30060 

Times and places of additional public hearings

  • Thursday, July 19, 2018
  • 12:00 PM - Session 2
  • 6:30 PM – Session 3
  • Boardroom - 514 Glover Street, Marietta, GA, 30060 

The Cobb County Board of Education will establish millage rates at a meeting: 

  • Thursday, July 19, 2018
  • 7:00 PM
  • Boardroom - 514 Glover Street, Marietta, GA, 30060
