2016 Tax Bills
The 2016 property tax bills were mailed on September 12, 2016 with a November 15, 2016 due date.  If you purchased the property after January 1, 2016, you may not have received a bill because Georgia law requires the bills to be mailed to the owner of record as of January 1 of the taxable year.  You may call our office at 770-467-4360 and request a copy of the bill.  You may also use the “search & pay taxes” tab and search for the tax bill and print a copy of the bill. You may pay online as well.  There is a 2.2% convenience fee for debit and credit card payments through Paypal.    

If you sold your property after January 1, 2016, you will still receive the tax bill for this year.   You may submit a copy of the closing statement before the deadline to this office with the name of the new owner and we will send the new owner a copy of the tax bill with an additional 60 days to pay without accruing late fees.    

We do not mail tax bills to mortgage companies.  If you have an escrow account, be sure and send a copy of this bill to your lienholder for payment of these taxes.  

Sylvia W Hollums,
Tax Commissioner
