April 26, 2022 – the Chatham County Tax Commissioner’s Office reminds Chatham County drivers and property owners that new optimization efforts have made it more convenient than ever to renew autotags and pay property taxes.
“At the Chatham County Tax Commissioner’s Office, we are committed to excellence, transparency and efficiency,” said Chatham County Tax Commissioner Sonya L. Jackson. “That’s why we’ve taken significant steps to streamline and optimize our services for Chatham County residents.”
From the home page of the Commissioner of Taxes at tax.chathamcountyga.gov, citizens can renew their auto tag online, change their address, pay property tax bills, estimate vehicle taxes, check current wait times at each office, and much more. They can also view, print or pay property taxes online with an electronic check, debit or credit card and schedule an appointment online at one of the offices of the Chatham County Commissioner of Taxes. Citizens are invited to visit tax.chathamcountyga.gov to take advantage of these convenient online services.
Additionally, Chatham County property tax bills for the first half of 2022 were mailed to property owners earlier this month. These payments are due by Wednesday, June 1 and can be paid in line or in person at any Chatham County Tax Commissioner’s office.
The Chatham County Tax Commissioner’s Office reminds citizens that if their mortgage company pays their property tax bill directly through an escrow account, there is no need to make a duplicate payment. Approximately 33% of Chatham County property tax payments are made through mortgage companies or their designated representatives. In these cases, copies of property tax bills are always mailed to taxpayers for record keeping purposes.
