Deadline for paying Hall Co. property taxes fast-approaching

By AccessWDUN staff

The deadline for paying Hall County property taxes without penalty is now less than two weeks away.

County officials announced earlier this year that real and personal property taxes will be due Nov. 15 this year, rather than Dec. 1 as in years past.  The Board of Commissioners voted for the change Feb. 9.  Tax bills were mailed in September.

Hall County Tax Commissioner Darla Eden has said the earlier due date would be beneficial to the County and citizens alike for several reasons.

"This move will alleviate traffic in our office by separating the property tax due date from motor vehicle due dates at the beginning and end of every month, which should create a better experience for taxpayers," she said.

Eden said the move will also avoid processing delays associated with the Thanksgiving holiday.

"There are more business days between Nov. 15 and Thanksgiving than there are between the holiday and Dec. 1, so we will be able to process all of the incoming mail by Thanksgiving rather than managing a 5-7 day backlog of mail after the holiday," she said.

Other benefits of the due date change, as cited by Eden, include a decrease in the time between the tax digest being approved and the mailing of statements.  She said the move will also create more efficiency for the Business License, Tax Assessors and Financial Services departments as well as the Hall County School System.

The change in due date also means second notices will now be mailed on Dec. 7 instead of Dec. 22.
