The 2012 property tax bills have been mailed for all Floyd County, City of Rome and Cave Spring taxpayers, according to a release from the office of Floyd County Tax Commissioner Kevin Payne.  The deadline to pay property taxes is November 15th.  Most Floyd County residents will see their tax bills drop from 2011 levels.  The millage rate for Floyd County and the City of Rome residents dropped to 29.888 mills and 35.117 mills, respectively (where 1 mil equals $1 per $1000 of assessed value).  This was due to the reduction in the State portion of all property tax bills.  Assessments have dropped for most residents in the county, resulting in smaller tax bills.
