Property tax laws in Georgia are administered by the Department of Revenue. They require real and personal property owners to pay the assessed tax within the stipulated time and file the necessary returns.
These taxes are generally used to fund state and local government services and infrastructure, including local law enforcement agencies and fire departments.
The property tax system in Georgia is assessed by how much a person owns. So, the more property you own, the higher your property tax bill will be.
However, the law provides some property tax exemptions for certain people. These exemptions could either exclude those qualified from payment of property tax or allow them to claim tax concessions up to a certain amount.
