IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
TO ACWORTH TAXPAYERS
CITY NOT INCREASING TAX RATES

 Each year, the Board of Tax Assessors is required to review the assessed value of taxable property in Acworth.  When the trend of prices on properties that have recently sold in the City indicate there has been an increase in the fair market value of property, the Board of Tax Assessors is required by law to re-determine the value of such property and adjust the assessment.  This is called a reassessment. Per Georgia law, all taxing agencies must advertise a tax increase if they collect more taxes than the previous year which can be due to reassessments.

The City of Acworth has proposed a millage rate equal to last year’s millage rate of 8.95.  The millage rate is not being increased in the City of Acworth.  The tax rate will be the same for 2021 as it was in 2020. Homeowners with a homestead exemption should not receive an increase on their city tax bill.
