Online Property Tax
Payment Services Available
In an effort to improve service to Habersham County property owners, Tax Commissioner June Black has commissioned the county's web services provider to develop an online tax information and payment system. Programmers put the finishing touches on the system in August 2008.
The new system allows property owners to look up their tax bills online and make payments by credit card or debit card. With guidance and direction from Mrs. Black, the new system has been custom designed for the Habersham County Tax Commissioner's Office and was developed exclusively for Habersham County.
Mrs. Black planned the system to be an easy-to-use information center as well as an online payment system. She said it is just another step in making her office more consumer-friendly and customer service oriented.
