In 2017, Peachtree Corners formed as a city in Gwinnett County, GA. It was a unique model in that they do not have a city millage rate. It has been successful and since repeated by other communities in Georgia.
Brian Johnson, Peachtree Corners City Manager, says "we have no city property taxes." In the model, the city generates revenue through things like business and alcohol licenses, permit fees, fines, as well as utility franchise fees. When you combine several revenue streams together, you can get a large overall revenue stream."
In 2020, Peachtree Corners city millage rate is still ZERO. See for yourself: Gwinnett 2020 Millage Rates
