Deadline for first installment of property tax in DeKalb County due September 30

By on September 12, 2022 0

DeKalb County Tax Commissioner Irvin Johnson reminds homeowners of the upcoming Sept. 30 property tax deadline.

DeKalb property owners have the option of paying the first of two property tax installments or paying the full annual amount in one installment before the September 30 deadline.

For taxpayers who choose to pay in two installments, the deadline for the second installment is November 15.

To avoid delays, Johnson recommends taxpayers plan ahead and make their payments online at DeKalbTax.org. Taxpayers also have the option of using additional payment methods such as mail or telephone. Johnson recommends these options because he says taxpayers paying in person should expect potentially long wait times.

“We encourage taxpayers to plan ahead and make payments over the phone, by secure drop box at one of our three offices, or online by the September 30 deadline,” Johnson said. “Customers paying in person can expect longer lines and wait times as the deadline approaches.”

Taxpayers who choose to pay through a secure drop box can find them at the Memorial Drive or Clairmont Road tax offices, as well as the South DeKalb Mall tax office.

Anyone who chooses to pay by phone can simply call 770-336-7500, and the service is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For homeowners who decide to pay by mail, the Office of the Tax Commissioner advises that all mailed payments must be postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service before the due date to avoid incurring late fees.

The tax commissioner’s office says all homeowners who pay in person will be able to do so at the Memorial Drive office, Monday, September 19 through Friday, September 30.

Taxpayers paying in person are required to bring their tax bill stubs and a valid Georgian ID or driver’s license. Debit, credit, check and money order are all accepted methods of payment.

Customers paying in person will also be required to undergo a security check and temperature check, according to the tax commissioner’s office.
