Tomlinson: Columbus homeowners will not pay more in property taxes

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

In an effort to clarify confusion over taxes, Mayor Teresa Tomlinson tells News Leader 9 that homeowners in Columbus will not have to dig deeper in their pockets to pay more in property taxes.

She says the city's current tax freeze is still in place, but the city of Columbus will receive one percent more in total property taxes collected as a result of the rollback millage rate now being lifted.

State law requires the city to hold three public hearings to give taxpayers a chance to respond.

The first meeting was held this morning in council chambers with no opposition to the notice. The next meeting will be held June 17 at 9 a.m. at the City Services Center.
