The Hampton County Council did not increase the millage under the Council’s control. There also has not been a reassessment on your property value this year. The increase shown this year is due to two factors: 1. Shortage in collection of taxes (2014 citizens and businesses not paying their taxes) 2. In School District 1 – the issuance of a new bond (millage has to be placed to collect for the payment of this bond)Your tax notice reflects the following:School District 1: 4 mills increase for deficit 22 mills increase to cover the Bond Payments due for this fiscal yearSchool District 2: 6 mills increase for deficit 22 mills increase to cover the Bond Payments due for this fiscal year**Note: School District 2 did not issue any new bondsPlease note it is the Treasurer’s responsibility to notify the Auditor of the amount needed to pay the Bonds each year.
