2019 Tax Digest & Five-Year History

NOTICE OF PROPERTY TAX INCREASE
The Mayor and Council of the City of Cleveland announce the intent to increase the 2019 property taxes by 1.71% (percent) over the rollback millage rate.  The rate increase is to support the growing expenses for public safety, public works, and administration.

All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearing on this tax increase to be held at the Cleveland City Hall Annex, 46 South Main Street, Cleveland GA on July 18, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and on July 25, 2019 at 9:00 a.m.

The 2019 millage rate will be voted on immediately following the 9:00 a.m. hearing of July 25, 2019. 

The proposed increase will result in a millage rate of 6.00 mills, an increase of .101 mills over the rollback rate.  Without this proposed tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 5.899 mills.   

The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $100,000 is approximately $10.10.
