Our Property Tax Division bills, collects, and distributes ad valorem property taxes for:
Personal property (boats, planes, equipment, and anything that is not a sold product)
Heavy duty equipment
In addition, this division processes homestead exemptions and conducts tax sales. They are also responsible for preparing the tax digest each year.
Revenue is distributed to the Board of Commissioners and Board of Education on a weekly basis. Below is a pie chart showing the average percentage of revenue collected among our taxing authorities for real and personal property taxes. Of note, mobile home and heavy duty taxes are collected not only for the county, Department of Revenue, Board of Education, and CIDs, but for all six cities in Cobb County.
