Oconee County Commissioners Set To Approve Big Cut In Property Taxes

***Drop Greater Than Promised Before Sales Tax Referendum***

Oconee County commissioners are set to approve a new millage rate for the vast majority of property owners in the county that represents an 8.4 percent cut in property taxes.

The millage rate of 4.824 reflects a larger cut than the 1 mill drop in property taxes the commissioner promised when voters approved the Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax last November.
