The Hall County Tax Commissioner's Office is reminding taxpayers there are several ways to pay their property taxes ahead of the deadline on Nov. 15.
“We’ve been working for a long time on creating multiple ways for taxpayers to pay their taxes without coming in our door,” said Hall County Tax Commissioner Darla Eden. “Today, about the only reason for visiting our office is to make a cash payment.”
Payments can be made online at hallcountytax.org. Online payment methods include E-Check ($1.50 flat fee), debit card (1.99% transaction fee) and credit card/PayPal, PayPal Credit (2.5% transaction fee). All major credit cards are accepted.
"The PayPal Credit payment option is a line of credit that is interest-free after the initial transaction fee if paid in full within the six-month window," the press release said.
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 to avoid state-mandated interest charges.
Additionally, taxpayers can also use the drive-up drop box located across from the front doors at the Hall County Government Center under the breezeway at 2875 Browns Bridge Road. Payments must be placed in the drop box on or before Nov. 15 to avoid state-mandated interest charges.
The Tax Office can accept payment via debit and credit card through our Customer Interaction Center, where agents are available Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. To make a payment or get assistance, please call 770.531.6950, text 833.602.8497, or email [email protected].
In-office tax payments paid in cash are accepted in the lobby of the Tax Office. Payments by check or card are accepted at the Information Desk, where you can request a receipt by mail or email. To minimize your wait, please contact the office or go online to make an appointment.
Property owners on January 1 are responsible for that year's property tax. For properties sold in 2023, buyers and sellers must determine who will pay the tax by the November 15 deadline. Refer to your closing documents or attorney to determine tax liability and ensure on-time payment to the Hall County Tax Commissioner’s Office.
“Our office is dedicated to offering a range of payment options that cater to our community’s needs,” said Eden. “I encourage property owners to utilize our many convenient tools to save a trip and skip the line.”
