The Rockdale County Board of Commissioners has tentatively adopted a 2020 millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 4.91 percent. This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 18.90 mills, an increase of .884 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 18.016 mills. 

The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $100,000 is approximately $22.10 and the proposed tax increase for non‐homestead property with a fair market value of $300,000 is approximately $106.08.
