WOW – Georgia Property Tax Time

Hello!  It is that time of the year again – back to school, college football season & time to pay your Georgia Property Tax!

Most of the Atlanta metro counties have now released their 2015 property tax bills; see counties and their due dates listed below.
What does this mean for you as a buyer or seller of a home?

  1. All 2015 property tax bills will now be paid at closing even though the due date for the payment may be months or weeks away.  If you, as a seller, have an escrow account established for property taxes, the mortgage company will refund any amount unused in the account once the mortgage has been paid off after closing.
  2. Remember – Cash buyers who have purchased a home earlier this year or buyers that did not establish an escrow account with a loan — you are responsible for paying the entire bill for 2015 in full. (Remember the sellers of your new home gave an estimated prorated share of the bill at closing).
    A buyer must pay the bill even though it will not show their name as the owner of record.  The counties send their bills out with the name of the property owner as of January 1, so new buyer’s name will not show up on the property tax bills until 2016.

Recent purchasers and sellers often have many questions regarding the property taxes on your homes – feel free to contact The WOW Team with any questions you may have.
