First property tax installment due October 1

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- According to the Hall County government, the first installment of property tax bills is due October 1. The due date falls on a Saturday; however, Tax Commissioner Keith Echols will accept payments postmarked or paid by Monday, October 3.

This will be the first year property owners have the option to pay their county taxes in two installments. At least half of the total must be received by October 3 to avoid a charge of one percent interest per month. Taxpayers will not receive a second bill when the second installment is due Dec. 1. If the entire amount is not paid by December 1, the taxpayer will be charged 1 percent interest per month until the bill is paid. Once the bill is 90 days late, a 10-percent penalty will be charged.

There are several convenient ways the other 60 percent of property owners may submit payment: online payment, payment by mail and drop-off payment.
