You may want to add a visit to the Hall County Tax Commissioner’s Office to the holiday to-do list.

Property taxes are due Dec. 1 and there are only a few days left to pay in person.

The Tax Commissioner’s Office will be closed Wednesday for a furlough day and Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday.

“We always have a rush the week of Thanksgiving and the week after,” Tax Commissioner Keith Echols said. “A lot of people are still coming in to pay their bills the last couple days.”

Echols said Dec. 1 is typically the busiest day for the three offices — the main office in the Administration Building in downtown Gainesville, the South Hall location in the College Square shopping center and the North Hall office at Quillian’s Corner.

Echols said payments that are postmarked by Dec. 1 will be considered on time, even if they arrive at the office later.

A 1 percent interest rate will be charged each month after the Dec. 1 deadline until the bill is paid.

After 90 days, the state imposes a 10 percent interest charge.

Echols said people who don’t think they will be able to afford their tax bill should pay as much as possible before the deadline.

“If they will make a 50 percent payment or as much as they can, that will come off before interest. The interest won’t be as high when it starts,” Echols said.

In 2011, Hall County will begin splitting property taxes into two payments. The first installment will be due Oct. 1 and the second due Dec. 1.

The Hall County Board of Commissioners voted earlier this month to collect taxes twice after voters expressed their interest on the ballot.
