As the Nov. 15 property tax deadline approaches, the Hall County Tax Commissioner’s Office is reminding taxpayers that there are several convenient options to pay taxes to save time and avoid traveling to the Tax Office.
“We’ve been working for a long time on creating multiple ways for taxpayers to access our office without coming in our door,” said Hall County Tax Commissioner Darla Eden. “Today, about the only reason for visiting our office is to title a vehicle.”
The Tax Commissioner's Office has been educating the public about the ease of paying taxes as part of its “Save a Trip and Skip the Line” advertising campaign.
Making online payments at hallcountytax.org is the preferred method. Click on the Property & Mobile Home Tax button on the home page and follow the helpful prompts. Online payment methods include E-Check ($1.50 flat fee) and debit/credit card (2.5% of amount plus $.30 cents per transaction). Most major credit cards are accepted.
The newest method of payment is with PayPal Credit, which allows you to take up to six months to pay your property tax bill. The PayPal Credit Payment Option is a line of credit that is interest-free if paid in full within the six-month window.
Another option is payment by mail, using the return envelope provided with the statement sent to your address on file. Send your check or credit card info to P.O. Box 1579, Gainesville, GA 30503. Payments must be postmarked by Nov. 15, 2021, to avoid interest charges.
If you prefer talking to someone, you may call or text the Tax Office where helpful clerks are on standby during business hours to assist with your credit and debit card payments. The phone number is (770) 531-6950 and the text number is (833) 602-8497.
Citizens may also utilize the drop box located in front of the main doors of the Hall County Government Center at 2875 Browns Bridge Road. Payments must be placed in the drop box on or before Nov. 15 to avoid state-mandated interest charges.
In-office tax payments paid in cash are allowed in the entrance lobby of the Government Center; however, an appointment is appreciated to avoid congestion. Payments made by check or card will be handled at the information desk where a receipt can be mailed or emailed to you if requested.
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, text (833) 602-8497, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
