The rate is 5.4% lower than last year’s rate.

The “rollback rate” is designed to offset increases in property values. Residents should see no increase in their city property tax bill compared to last year, according to the city.


Roswell provided numbers that show a homeowner with a property that has a fair market value of $450,000 will pay around $803.34 in property taxes.

City taxes make up approximately 15% or the total property tax bill. The rest goes to Fulton County Schools and Fulton County.

Roswell said only Johns Creek has a lower tax rate in North Fulton County.
