Unpaid property taxes now accruing interest

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - Hall County property owners who did not pay property tax by Dec. 2 are now accruing interest on their unpaid property tax.

A state-mandated 1 percent interest was applied to unpaid bills on Dec. 3 (payments were accepted on Dec. 2 without penalty this year since Dec. 1 fell on a Sunday).

A second property tax notice will be mailed to all property owners with unpaid bills on Jan. 10 and will include an additional 1 percent interest for the month of January. January interest will not be applied to any bill where payment in full is either received or is U.S. postmarked prior to Jan. 1.

To locate unpaid tax amounts, log on to tax.hallcounty.org, email propertytax@hallcounty.org or call 770-531-6950.

Residents are offered four different options for paying property tax and tag renewals. They can do so by mail, in person, by logging on to tax.hallcounty.org or by calling 770-531-6950.

A payment box is located near the information table inside the Tax Commissioner's Office so that those who do not wish to wait may drop their payment there during regular business hours. In addition, an outside drop box is located at the front door entrance to the Hall County Government Center for those who do not wish to come inside or for after-hour payment. Those who wish to pay by check, debit or credit are encouraged to use either of the drop boxes for both motor vehicle renewals and property tax payments or to use the online service. (A 2.59 percent bank fee will be added to all debit/credit payments).
