Hall County Approves 2 Payment System for Taxpayers

Atlanta, GA--  Hall County property owners have the option to pay taxes in two installments starting with the 2011 tax year. The Hall County Board of Commissioners voted Thursday to change from one to two due dates, following the results of a referendum by the voters on Nov. 3.

Tax Commissioner Keith Echols will mail a tax bill on Aug. 1 that includes two payment coupons. The first installment will be due Oct. 1, at which time at least half of the total must be paid. Late payments accrue interest of 1-percent per month. The remainder is due Dec. 1. If the entire amount is not paid by Dec. 1, a 10-percent penalty will be charged after 90 days, in addition to 1-percent interest per month.

Penalties and interest for Hall County property taxes are set by state law, unlike municipal taxes. The City of Gainesville allows taxpayers the option to pay in two installments, but the first due date is not mandatory. The Oct. 1 due date will be mandatory for Hall County taxpayers.
