Notice of Property Tax Increase

Tentative Millage Rate

The Mayor and Council of the City of Roswell have tentatively adopted a millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 0.43 percent.

All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearing/meetings on this tax increase to be held virtual on the following dates: Due to restrictions associated with COVID-19, please regularly check the City meeting calendar for information on accessing meetings.

This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 4.705 mills, an increase of 0.02 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 4.685 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $400,000 is approximately $3.20 and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $650,000 is approximately $5.20.

Tax Increase Explanation

Your total property tax rate, or millage rate, is proposed to remain the same as last year at 4.955. The City is estimating a slight increase in property values that may result in additional property tax revenue. Actual changes in property values will not be available until the City receives the official property digest from the Fulton County Tax Commissioner. The City's total property tax rate has remained the same since FY2019.

Homestead Exemptions

Four homestead exemptions are offered by the City of Roswell. To qualify, property owners must own and occupy the home as their permanent residence as of January 1 of the tax year. Applications are accepted between January 1 and June 1 and may be submitted in person at City Hall (Suite 210) or via email at

Once approved, the homestead exemptions will renew automatically each year until a change in ownership occurs. Homestead exemption amounts, excluding the Disabled Veteran Exemption, apply to the General Fund Millage Rate only.

Floating Homestead Exemption

This exemption is automatically granted to all Roswell residents with a Fulton County Homestead Exemption in place. The Floating Homestead Exemption caps the 2019 taxable value at the lowest value from 2016, 2017, or 2018 plus 4.23%. For future years, value increases will be limited by the rate of inflation or 3%, whichever is less.

  • A $2,000 exemption is available for persons age 65 or older.
  • A $20,000 exemption is available for persons age 65 or older with a combined Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of less than $40,000.
