For properties that changed ownership during the year, whoever owns the property on Jan. 1 is responsible for that year’s property tax. If property is sold after Jan. 1, it is the responsibility of the buyer and seller to determine who will pay the owed tax by the due date.
For owners with property tax escrow accounts, tax information is made available to mortgage companies. The property owner is responsible for ensuring taxes are paid by the due date.
If you own property within the city limits of Gainesville, Flowery Branch, Buford or Oakwood, you will receive a separate city tax bill from that municipality.
The Hall County Tax Commissioner’s Office is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
