County and city set millage rates for 2017
By Linda Green

The McDuffie County Commission has approved a millage rate that will not result in a tax increase for citizens in the 2017 fiscal year.
The Thomson City Council set a millage rate for 2017 at .076 above 2016ís rate of 6.881, which results in a $16,000 shortfall in tax revenue for the city.
During its Aug. 22 session, the county commission adopted a millage rate of 7.80 for the unincorporated areas of McDuffie County and 8.2 mills for the areas inside the city limits. The total millage rate for 2017 for the unincorporated area is 27.49, which includes 19.69 for McDuffie Schools. The total millage rate for the incorporated area is 27.89.
The 7.80 mils rate is unchanged for areas outside the city limits in the 2017 fiscal year. The rate for the areas inside the city limits decreased .3, from 8.5 mills last year to 8.2 in 2017.
The millage rate is used to compute ad valorem taxes levied on taxable property in McDuffie County.
