Finding Your County Tax Commissioner
Elected by counties, tax commissioners oversee most phases of the taxing process — billing, collecting, processing and distributing taxes. They are generally in charge of property taxes, solid waste fees, public utilities and ad valorem taxes on motor vehicles (or renewing your vehicle). A variety of areas in the counties benefit from the work of tax commissioners — individual cities, education, transportation, etc.
Find your tax collector on the Georgia Department of Revenue’s website.
