Delinquent Taxes

Disclaimer: The information contained on our website is designed to provide a general overview and should not be construed to be legal advice. If you are unclear about any of these processes or if you require more detailed information, please consult with an attorney who can advise you properly based on your personal circumstances. Employees of the Tax Commissioner's Office are strictly prohibited from providing legal advice, guidance, suggestions or recommendations.

The Cobb County Tax Commissioner's Office does not sell its Tax Liens or Tax Lien Certificates. If a property does not sell at a tax sale, the property goes back into a rotation for future tax sale. If you are interested in purchasing a property at tax sale, we strongly advise that you seek competent legal advice before participating in the sale. 

If your property is under a tax lien and/or levied for tax sale and you have questions about this process, please consult with an attorney. 

Delinquent Taxes Overview

Property taxes are considered delinquent if they are unpaid by the October 15 deadline. Even if a portion has already been paid, any remaining unpaid taxes after the due date are still considered delinquent and are subject to interest and penalties.

The Tax Commissioner's Office mails 30-day late notices on all unpaid accounts after October 15.

Tax Sales

Any taxes remaining unpaid after October 15 are subject to levy and tax sale. For more information regarding tax sales, visit our Tax Sales page.

Please note: If your property is coded for tax sale (an internal function), you will not be allowed to make payments on our website (for delinquent years) and we can only accept certified funds as payment of your delinquent taxes.
