Proposed Property Tax Increase

The Emanuel County Board of Education today announces its intention to increase the 2019 property taxes it will levy this year by 2.41 percent over the rollback millage rate.

All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this tax increase to be held on the following dates and times:

  • Mon, Aug 12, 2019 at 11:00 AM and 6:00 PM at the Emanuel County BOE Building, 201 North Main Street, Swainsboro, GA
  • Mon, Aug 26, 2019 at 6:00 PM at SPS, 308 Tiger Trail, Swainsboro, GA

This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 14.000 mills, an increase of 0.343 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be not more than 13.671 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $77,500 is approximately $10.63 and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead with a fair market value of $1,000,000 is approximately $137.20.
