Oconee County Commissioners To Cut Millage Rate To Offset Growth In Property Tax Assessments Due To Market Forces

***Decision Offsets Tax Increase***

Oconee County commissioners are scheduled to adopt on Aug. 2 new millage rates for the unincorporated and incorporated parts of the county that are 0.7 points lower than the current rates.

When the Board of Commissioners adopted its Fiscal Year 2023 Budget on June 7, Board Chair John Daniell said he expected to be able to propose a millage rate reduction for 2022 to offset inflationary market growth in property value.
