Hall County Commissioners want Mobile Homeowners to Pay Their Taxes

Gainesville, GA--  Due to record budget shortages across the state and in Hall County, county commissioners have made a move to attempt to collect delinquent taxes form mobile homeowners.  During a meeting on Monday, Commissioner Scott Gibbs said that he randomly drove around his district and found only 2 out of 100 mobile owners with the up-do-date sticker showing they had paid their taxes.

The Nikki Young of Hall County told 11Alive News that "$860,000 in tax revenue has been billed and $190,000 remains unpaid."  When asked whether there was a need or desire for new laws to be placed on the books, she said that there are already laws on the books, but that the problem is, "enforcement...With only 4 marshals in the field, it is hard to enforce the delinquent tax laws."

In an AP article citing the GainesvilleTimes, Commissioner Gibbs is quoted to saying he is looking to give county marshals "some teeth".
