Chattahoochee Hills set to adopt 2017 millage rate

The city of Chattahoochee Hills is poised to set the 2017 millage rate which includes a rollback. The current millage rate is 10.958 and has not been changed since 2009. The recommendation is to roll the millage rate back to 10.00.

A public meeting on this tax rate will be held at 6:30 Sept. 12 at City Hall, 6505 Rico Road, Chattahoochee Hills.

This tentative rollback will result in a decrease of 0.958 mills. The proposed tax decrease for a home with a fair market value of $125,000 is approximately $48 and the proposed tax decrease for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $300,000 is approximately $115.

The city offers a homestead exemption of $15,000 which must be filed prior to April 1 of the respective tax year. There are additional exemptions for seniors age 65 and older and age 70 and older. Seniors in those age brackets may also qualify for additional exemptions up to including a full exemption after age 70 under certain income restrictions.
