The Tax Commissioner is responsible for collecting property taxes, preparation of the County digest, billing, accounting and disbursements.
Property taxes include those assessed on real estate, personal property, public utilities, timber and ad valorem taxes on motor vehicles and mobile homes. These collections are disbursed to state, county, school and city governing authorities. As a tag agent for the State of Georgia, the Tax Commissioner is also responsible for the collection of all taxes, and tag fees for motor vehicles applicable under the Georgia Code. The Tax Commissioner enforces all regulations mandated by the state.
A large percentage of the revenue realized by the Cherokee County Board of Commissioners and Board of Education is generated from taxes and fees collected by the Tax Commissioner. The financial stability of these institutions largely depends upon the efficient operation of the Tax Commissioner's office. Cities also benefit from taxes collected on motor vehicles and mobile homes.
The Tax Commissioner and staff are dedicated to providing prompt, professional, and courteous service to the taxpayers of Cherokee County.
