Yazoo County plans to increase the ad valorem tax millage rate by 2.9 mills with an additional increase of .88 mills for the Yazoo County School District for a total of 3.78 mills.
The county currently operates on a budget with a projected revenue of $14,246,683 with 63.48 (9,750,940) percent of that revenue coming from ad valorem taxes. For the next fiscal year, Yazoo County has proposed a budget with a projected revenue of $15,016,038. Of that amount, 64.93 percent (9,750,940) would come from ad valorem taxes.
