How are my taxes calculated?
(Property Value x Assessment Rate) - Exemptions) x Property Tax Rate = Tax Bill
Tax Bill Proportion- $450k Property in Peachtree City
- The property value is the full market value appraised by the Assessors. All property in Georgia is taxed at an assessment rate of 40% of its full market value.
$100,000 x 40% = $40,000
- The taxable value is then multiplied by the millage rate. 1 mill = $1 tax per $1,000 taxable value. Peachtree City's 2022 Millage rate is 6.043, which means property owners pay $6.043 per $1,000 of taxable value. The average home price in Peachtree City is $450,000 x 40% = $180,000 x (6.043/1,000) = $1,088 would be your tax bill due to Peachtree City. (Peachtree City's Senior exemption is $5,000 however it is not included in this example.)
- Residents pay approximately $2.98 per day in taxes to Peachtree City for a $450,000 home ($1,088/365= $2.98).
