Oconee County School Board Increases Cut To Millage Rate After Public Hearings

***New Rate Represents 4.7 Percent Tax Increase***

The Oconee County Board of Education on Monday evening unanimously adopted a final millage rate of 15.5 for 2022, rather than the 16.25 rate proposed by Superintendent Jason Branch.

The 15.5 millage rate represents a tax increase of 4.7 percent from the 2021 rate.

The Board would have had to have reduced the millage rate to 14.8 to have avoided an increase in property taxes for Oconee County property owners for the year.
