Why almost 5,000 tax bills will be bigger though school tax rate stays the same
While the school tax rate may be the same for Gainesville residents as a year ago, owners of almost 5,000 properties will be paying more. By a 3-2 vote on Monday, the Gainesville City Board of Education approved keeping the property tax rate for the 2018 fiscal year the same as last year’s 6.85 mills. The millage rate equals $1 of taxes on every $1,000 of taxable value.
