 DeKalb County will host public hearings to discuss a proposed increase in property tax rates on Tuesday, July 5 at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., and on Tuesday, July 12 at 10 a.m. in the Maloof Auditorium, 1300 Commerce Drive in Decatur.

The DeKalb County Board of Commissioners has tentatively adopted millage rates, which will require an increase in property tax rates as listed below.

    Avondale Estates              15.41        13.464                      14.45%

    Pine Lake                         15.61        13.541                       15.28%
    Stone Mountain                13.90        12.980                         7.09%
    Unincorporated                19.62        18.017                          8.90%
    
Countywide Debt                  1.08          0.647                          66.92%
Unincorporated Debt             0.66          1.631                         -59.53%

This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 21.36 mills in the unincorporated area, an increase of 4.50 mills.

These millage rates are prior to the application of the Homestead Exemptions and credits from the Homestead Option Sales Tax.  In 2010, the Board of Commissioners granted a 56.6 percent HOST Credit for County operations and maintenance based upon the use of 97.3 percent of last year’s HOST receipts.  In 2011, the Board of Commissioners has voted to use 80 percent for the HOST Credit.

The hearings are open to the public and citizens are encouraged to attend.
