Property Taxes

Taxes on real estate and tangible personal property are levied by the City of Warrenton, Warren County, Warren County School District, and the State of Georgia as of January 1 of each year.

The taxes are collected by the county. All rates are set at the local level, except state tax, which is fixed by Georgia law. The tax rates are set annually, but do not significantly change from year to year. All properties are assessed at 40% of fair market value. The effective tax rate represents total tax as a percentage of fair market value.

Warren County, Georgia’s millage rate for 2016 is 32.358 mils, or an effective tax rate of 1.29%.

Example: Annual property taxes for $1,000,000 of real or personal property at a millage rate of 32.358 mills would be as follows: $1,000,000 X 40% = $400,000 assessment; $400,000 x .032358 = $12,943 -- annual property taxes
