2021 Property Tax Digest and 5 Year History of Levy: (click here) 2021-Current-Tax-Digest-and-5-Year-History-of-Levy.pdf

Union County is adopting the rollback rate of 6.024, down from last year’s county millage rate of 7.178.  The State Computation form indicates this is a 0.00% tax increase.  The rollback rate is set by the State of Georgia using the county’s net digest number.

According to the Georgia Department of Revenue, the “Net Tax % Increase” of 10.63% on the 2021 Tax Digest Form is based on growth in the county only (new properties, additions, etc.), NOT inflationary growth.
