Committed to Keeping Our City Property Taxes Low
For Tucker's first years, our millage rate was zero. In 2019, Tucker set the 2020 millage rate at 0.9 mils to fund parks and recreation which actually decreased our total property taxes. Tucker's 0.9 millage rate replaced the 1.458 millage rate DeKalb County charged for parks and recreation.
It is more important than ever that our city government keeps our millage rates low. The pandemic has created a super heated housing market which has increased house prices to records highs. Our property taxes are ensured to rise as DeKalb County must make new property tax assessments because of our homes increased value. By keeping our millage rate low, our city government can do its part to lessen our tax burden.
