The Tax Commissioner’s Office is responsible for
- issuing vehicle tags,
- renewal of tag decals,
- application for titles for vehicles or mobile homes, and
- the billing and collection of ad valorem (property) taxes.
We also issue mobile home decals and collect ad valorem taxes on mobile homes.
Our office also issues handicap placards. Each placard requires a notarized statement from your doctor attesting to the temporary or permanent disability. These forms are available in our office, or we will be glad to mail you one. There are several options, so please contact us at our office for details.
Property taxes are due each year on the 20th of December. Interest, at 1% per month, and penalties accrue after that date. In arriving at the amount of your property taxes, the Tax Commissioner takes the property value as determined by the Board of Assessors and applies the millage rate as determined by the Board of Commissioners. This equals the amount of tax you owe; The Tax Commissioner has no authority over the value or the millage rate.
Mobile home property taxes are due by May 1 each year.
Tag renewals are due by the birthday of the titled owner of the vehicle. Renewals can be done not more than 45 days prior to the birthday. These can be done in person or by mail. If done by mail, a $1 fee applies per renewal.
We have property ad valorem and mobile home tax digests available for several prior years, as well as the current year, for public use.
Please note: tag information is confidential and cannot be released to the public.
Our goal is to provide accurate information in a timely and courteous manner. If we fail to meet your expectations, please contact our office.
