NOTICE OF PROPERTY TAX INCREASE

The Troup County Board of Education has tentatively adopted a 2018 millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 0.95 percent.
 

All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearing on this tax increase to be held at  Administrative Services Center Board Room, 100 North Davis Road Building C, LaGrange, GA on June 18, 2018 at 10:00 A.M.
 

Times and places of additional public hearings on this tax increase are at Administrative Services Center Board Room, 100 North Davis Road Building C, LaGrange, GA on June 18, 2018 at 6:00 P.M. and June 28, 2018 at 6:00 P.M.
 

This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 18.850 mills, an increase of 0.178 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 18.672 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $125,000 is approximately $8.54 and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $125,000 is approximately $8.90.

Notice of Millage Rate Hearings - TCSS is NOT requesting an increase in 2018 Millage Rates

 

The Troup County Board of Education is not proposing an increase to the current millage rate of 18.85.  The millage rate last year was 18.85, and the millage rate being proposed for this year is also 18.85.  If the assessed value of your existing real property remains the same as the previous year, then you will see no change in taxes for school purposes.  The language used in an advertisement with the Troup County News and on troup.org (below) is a state requirement and can not be altered.  If you have questions, please feel free to email info@troup.org or attend one of the public hearings.

Pre-Registration Information

Registration for the 2018-2019 school year will be Thursday, July 26th. In an effort to ease the registration process, we are providing an opportunity for parents to complete a vital step in the registration process before “Registration”.

Beginning Monday, July 16th, and ending July 19th, parents can come to Lagrange High School and complete Pre-Registration. The Pre-Registration process does not complete all “Registration” requirements, thus parents are still required to attend on July 26th.

You will receive, by mail, an Affidavit and Student Census/Data Sheet. These two documents along with a valid identification and proof of residency are required for Pre-Registration. Please make all changes to the Census/Data Sheet prior to attending Pre-Registration.

Affidavit and Student Data Sheet will be mailed out July 9th.

Parents who complete this process will be given a Registration Pass. Parents/Students will need to bring this Pass to registration in order to bypass several steps during the registration process.

There will be signs directing you where to go during the week of Pre-Registration.
