Cobb announces proposed tax increase, public hearings


Cobb County government has unveiled to taxpayers a proposed budget of $1.15 billion. The county says this number does not include an increase to any millage rates (including the general fund) the County’s primary source of revenues that comes from property taxes. However, due to a 12.63 percent increase in the Cobb tax digest, this constitutes a tax increase according to state law, since a “rollback” in the millage rate to equal the current FY 2022 budget of $1.04 billion is not included.

The proposed budget would include revenues totaling $865 million from those millage rates, compared to $768 million in the current budget.

Cobb is required to hold meetings on the proposed tax increase. The South Cobb community is urged to attend hearings and hold elected officials accountable for the additional taxes they impose on our community. Any persons wishing to be heard on the budget may appear at the Public Hearings at 100 Cherokee Street, 2nd Floor, Marietta, Georgia.

Hearings and adoption are as follows: 

  • Tuesday, July 12 at 9 a.m.
  • Tuesday, July 19 at 6:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, July 26 at 7 p.m. (adoption)
