2020 property tax statements mailed Wednesday

Houses

Property tax season is upon us, and the Hall County Tax Commissioner’s Office issued approximately 91,060 tax statements for real and personal property.   The 2020 Hall County property tax statements were mailed Sept. 16 and are due Nov. 15.

In a concerted effort to save the time and resources of citizens, the Hall County Tax Commissioner’s Office offers five ways to pay. Utilizing the enhanced website, making online payments at hallcountytax.org is the preferred method. Online payment methods include E-Check ($1.50 flat fee) and debit/credit card (2.5% of amount plus $.30 per transaction). We accept: American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa. The newest method of payment is with PayPal Credit, which provides a 6-month interest free, same-as-cash option to pay your property tax bill. The PayPal Credit Payment Option is a line of credit and is interest-free for 6 months if paid in full.

Another option is payment by mail, using the return envelope provided with the statement, to P.O. Box 1579, Gainesville, GA 30503. Dedicated clerks are ready to assist you in our call center with credit and debit card payments at (770) 531-6950. Citizens may also utilize the drop box located in front of the main doors of the Hall County Government Center, located at 2875 Browns Bridge Road, Gainesville, GA 30504. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, in-office payments will be limited to exact cash payments only. All other payments will be directed to use our drop box where a receipt can be mailed/emailed to the taxpayer if requested.

For properties that changed ownership during the year, whoever owns a property on Jan. 1 of each year is responsible for that year’s property tax. If property is purchased/sold after Jan. 1, it is the responsibility of the buyer and seller to determine who will pay the owed tax by the due date. Please refer to the closing documents or the closing attorney to determine tax liability for the current year.

For property owners with property tax escrow accounts, tax information is made available to mortgage companies; however, the property owner is responsible for ensuring taxes are paid by the due date.

If you own property within the city limits of Gainesville, Flowery Branch, Buford, or Oakwood, you will receive a separate city tax bill from that municipality.  

The Hall County Tax Commissioner’s website (hallcountytax.org) has up-to-date information on property tax payments on all parcels. The Tax Commissioner’s Office bills and collects taxes. The Tax Assessor’s Office determines property values. The Board of Commissioners, Board of Education, and cities set millage rates. One mill equals $1 of tax for every $1,000 of assessed value.

The Hall County Tax Commissioner’s Office is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If there are any questions or if assistance is needed, please contact the Hall County Tax Commissioner’s Office by phone at (770) 531-6950, fax (770) 531-7111 or email propertytax@hallcounty.org or text 1-833-602-8497
