This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 8.20 mills, an increase of 0.228 mills. Without this tentative increase, the millage rate will be no more than 7.972 mills.

The
City of Dalton Board of Education
does hereby announce that the millage rate will be set at the rescheduled regular board meeting to be held in the Council Chambers at Dalton City Hall, 300 West Waugh Street, Dalton, GA on Thursday, September 21, 2017 at 6:30 pm. Pursuant to the requirements of O.C.G.A. 48-5-32, the Board of Education does here publish the following presentation of the current year’s tax digest and levy, along with the history of the tax digest and levy for the past five years.
Tax digest amounts represent 100% assessed valuation. The net levy represents the amount billed and not the amount collected.
The above totals are subject to some revisions due to properties that are under appeal. O.C.G.A. 48-5-311 requires temporary tax bills based on 85% of the year’s assessed valuation or the taxpayers' return value, whichever is greater.
$97,156,471 was added to the 2017 Tax Digest by reassessment.
