St. Johns County homeowners could see property tax bill increase

St. Johns County residents can expect to see an increase in their tax bills if millage rates presented last week are approved by county commissioners in September. 

The St. Johns County Commission approved the recommended rates 5-0 on Tuesday, but the rates won’t be final until they pass two public hearings at the county auditorium. The first hearing will be at 5:01 p.m. on Sept. 6 at 500 San Sebastian View.

The commission could still decide to lower the millage rates, but does not plan to increase them, officials said.

The county is proposing to keep the property taxes rates the same or lower than the current fiscal year, which began Oct. 1, 2021, and ends Sept. 30.
