Deadline for city property taxes is approaching

MILLEDGEVILLE — As the end of the year rounds out, Milledgeville residents are bustling around town to prepare for the holidays, finish some last-minute Christmas shopping and are thinking about their new year’s resolution. This is also the time of year locals should include property tax bills at the top of their priority list.

The deadline to pay the 2012 city property tax is Wednesday, Dec. 19. Residents who miss the due date will incur a one-time 10 percent penalty and a 1 percent interest charge each month until the bill is paid.

Property taxes can be paid in person at the finance office in City Hall, located on Hancock Street, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The drive-thru window is also available for individuals able to present their bill, or bills can be dropped in the drop box located beside the drive-thru window. Another option is to mail payments to P.O. Box 1900, Milledgeville, Ga. 31059. 

To pay property taxes online, visit www.milledgevillaga.us and click on the “pay online” tab to search for properties by last name of the property owner or by parcel number. Those paying online can also print their own receipts through the website link.

Residents who need to verify the ownership name on property should call the Baldwin County Tax Assessors Office at (478) 445-5300 to do so. 

For more information about city property taxes, questions regarding notices, or if you did not receive a tax bill, contact the finance department at (478) 414-4010 or e-mail prushin@milledgevillega.us.
