NOTICE OF PROPERTY TAX INCREASE
The City of Sugar Hill has tentatively adopted a 2020 millage rate of 3.8 mils, which is the same millage rate the city has adopted for 16 consecutive years. Without this tentative tax increase of 4.51%, the millage rate would be no more than 3.636 mils. The increase results from the reassessment of property values in the city by the Gwinnett County Board of Tax Assessors as well as new construction added to the tax digest over the last year, not an actual increase in the millage rate.
The proposed tax increase for a homestead property in the city with an average fair market value of $300,000 is approximately $19.68 per year or 5.4 cents per day. The average non-homestead property in the city with an average fair market value of $275,000 is approximately $18 per year or 5 cents per day.
Property tax bills paid by homeowners in Sugar Hill are a combination of Gwinnett County Schools, Gwinnett County government and Sugar Hill. Sugar Hill contracts with the Gwinnett County Tax Commissioner for tax billing and collection.
All concerned citizens are invited to attend the public hearings to be held at City Hall, 5039 West Broad Street, Sugar Hill, Georgia on the following dates:
Monday, August 3, 2020 at 8:00 a.m.
Monday, August 3, 2020 at 6:30 p.m.
