Tifton- More than 17,000 pieces of property were re-appraised in Tift County this year, and most of the property values increased.

"The assessments are not what your taxes are figured on. Taxes are based on the millage rate. The millage rate is set by the county commission and the school board. If the county commission and the school board are able to roll back the millage rate to offset the inflationary increase then your tax bill should not see much of an increase, regardless of what your assessment is," explains Chief Appraiser, Theresa Lupo.

Tift County school superintendent, Harold Abbot ,says the board plans to roll back the current 13.74 millage rate this year. So, some Tift homeowners could actually see a decrease in their tax bills.
