Henry County Tax Commissioner
It is the mission of the Tax Commissioner’s office to collect and disburse all taxes due the State, County, and School System in a timely manner, while also providing excellent customer service with integrity and fairness for all.
Over the years, the Henry County Tax Commissioner’s office has been an instrumental part in helping legislatures to increase Homestead exemptions for the homeowner. We have extended the hours of operation in the Stockbridge and McDonough offices for added convenience in purchasing tags, paying property taxes, and filing for homestead exemptions. Filing for homestead requires your signature on the application at this time; however, the application may be downloaded from our county website and mailed in to our office. As laws change in Georgia, our office will continue to keep you informed and will always strive to do what is best for the citizens of Henry County.
The 2011 Property Tax Statements were mailed on August 26, 2011 and the bills are due November 16, 2011. If you have any questions regarding the statements, please contact the Tax Commissioner’s office at 770.288.8180, and press option 3.
On Wednesday, May 12, 2010, Governor Purdue signed into law House Bill 1055 which immediately went into effect. This law increases many state fees, including special and prestige license plate fees. Except for military plates, fees are increasing from $25 to $35 and annual special tag fees will increase to $35. Many of the special license plates currently on vehicles did not pay an additional special renewal fee. Examples of plates types previously exempt from annual special tag fees are: Wildlife Plates (aka Eagle Tags, Hummingbird and Bob White Quail) and Hobby Antique plates. For each tag sold, the local governing authority will continue to receive only $1 to offset operation costs.
