Toombs County Board of Education Schedules Public Hearings on Tax Increase
The Toombs County Board of Education has tentatively adopted a 2020 millage rate that will require an increase in property taxes by 6.91 percent over the rollback rate. This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 15.00 mills, an increase of .969 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 14.031 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $100,000 is approximately $38.76.
Public hearings on this tax increase to be held at the Toombs County Board of Education Central Office, 117 E. Wesley Avenue, Lyons, on Wednesday, August 12, at 7:30 a.m., and at the Toombs County High School, 500 Bulldog Road, Lyons, on Thursday, August 13, at 6:30 p.m., and Thursday, August 20, at 6:00 p.m.
