Coweta County Tax Commissioner Tommy Ferrell reminds taxpayers that 2012 state, county and school property taxes are due Monday, Dec. 3.
Property tax bills were mailed the first of October. If a taxpayer has not received a bill on any property which they have the responsibility of paying, they should check with the Tax Commissioner’s Office in the Coweta County Administration Building for the amount due to ensure payment is made on or before Dec. 3. Late charges begin accruing after that date.
Taxpayers may also view and print their tax bills online at www.cowetataxcom.com . Tax bills may also be paid on the website through PayPal.
Property owners who purchased their property after Jan. 1 should remember that tax bills are mailed to the legal owner of record as of Jan. 1. However, responsibility for payment of taxes would have been determined at closing, normally with the new owner becoming responsible. Failure to have received a tax bill in the mail will not cause late charges to be waived if paid after the due date. The Tax Commissioner’s Office cannot guarantee receipt of a tax bill in the mail.
Taxpayers are encouraged to mail their payments whenever possible. Official USPS postmarks are accepted. Visa, Mastercard and American Express are accepted with a 2.5 percent administration fee. Debit cards are accepted at the counter with a $2 fee per transaction. Also, an overnight payment drop box is located at the Perry Street entrance to the County Administration Building.

Office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except for the third Wednesday in each month when the office opens at 8:30.
