Good and bad news for Dougherty County taxpayers. If you live in Albany, your property taxes aren't growing up. But, you may not be as lucky if you live in unincorporated parts of the county.

County commissioners voted to roll back the millage rate to 10.658, meaning no increase in property taxes. But, they voted to rollback the millage to 7.79 in the Special Tax District, increasing taxes by .91 percent.

What that means for those of your outside the city limits is your taxes may increase if your home assessment went up more than 4.18 percent.

The Commission raised taxes in unincorporated Dougherty County to make sure they don't bring in less tax revenue than last year and to keep the county's budget balanced.
