AUGUSTA, Ga--

After three public hearings and lots of debate between Augusta commisioners, a final decision has been made about a property tax increase in Richmond County.

Thursday afternoon, the commission voted to increase the millage rate by .25 mills. That equals about $ 8.90 more on a $100,000 home.

City administrator Fred Russell says the tax increase will add about $750,000 to the general fund.

Richmond County property owners will see the increase reflected on their 2007 tax bill.

    how much tax money is being lost by having many permanent vendors at local flea markets( the barnyard and south augusta flea market) who have no business liscense or tax id and are making hundreds of dollars or more each weekend tax free. there needs to be a major crackdown on this.
