Madison County property owners can expect their tax bills in the mail early next month.
County tax commissioner Louise Watson said the state recently approved the county tax digest — the county’s overall property value.
“So we are ahead of the game this time,” said Watson. “The bills should be going out about the first of September.”
Watson said that means property owners will have more time to pay their bills than in years past.
“It (the tax bills being mailed) will be about a month earlier, but the due date will still be Dec. 20,” said Watson. “This will give taxpayers another month to know how much their taxes are and maybe start on paying.
Madison County’s tax digest decreased in 2008 and 2009 from a peak of $681.7 million in 2007 to $672 million in 2009. But the digest increased by roughly half a percent in 2010 to $676 million.
they were wrong in 2007 and they are wrong every year since. When will the tax office start going by the Georgia Dept. of Rev. rules?
They must think they are above that and the BOC will protect them since they totally control them. In the mean time we tax payers still keep getting overcharged.
Thanks Madison County for an additional tax increase of 500.00 dollars on our home and property. I hope you can waste this money as you have with all the thousands we give you each year. Never mind that housing is in the tank, and our property values are falling.Who knows, I might get sewer,trash pick-up, or water service someday. After all for 4,000 dollars you should see something out of this. Oh, I forgot, I get to pay school taxes for kids I don't have in the sytem. I do get to use county roads, I guess that makes this a great deal for me and many others here in this county.
