The property tax millage rate is considered by the Financial Affairs Committee
usually before the end of May or in early June upon receiving the property evaluation data (digest) from the Gwinnett County Tax Commissioner’s office.
The Financial Affairs Committee must review the city’s financial position to determine the level of funding required to support the current budget with any expected changes. The Financial Affairs Committee provides a rate recommendation to council for consideration.
The city council, by ordinance, shall establish a millage rate for the city property tax, a due date, and the time period within which these taxes must be paid. The series of events leading up to establishment of the millage rate depends on whether taxes are being increased or not.
The 2016 Millage Rate for the City of Berkeley Lake is 2.369 mils.
