Baldwin’s tax rate for the next fiscal year will be lower than the current rate.
At the monthly meeting of the Baldwin City Council on Monday, the council unanimously approved the 2011 millage rate ordinance. The net millage rate for the calendar year 2011 and for the 2011-12 fiscal year is set at 8.00 mills for the Habersham County residents and 3.60 mills for the Banks County residents. The current Habersham County rate is 8.25.
The Banks County millage rate is lower because there is a 4.4 mills rollback for the Banks County side of Baldwin.
Property will be taxed at its 40 percent digest value and tax bills will be due 60 days from the date they are postmarked.
