Property Tax

Overview


The Finance Department is responsible for the billing and collection of property taxes for the city government. Property tax bills provide a description of the property, taxable values and details of the calculation of the tax bill. The property tax millage rate is 9.5 mills.

School Tax

The City of Powder Springs does not have a school tax. School taxes are included with your property tax bill you receive from Cobb County.

Bills

Property tax bills are normally prepared and mailed out by the end of September and are due 60 days later. Taxes are considered delinquent if not received by December 1st. The interest provision of HB960 applies to most taxes owed to local governments. These include real and personal property taxes, alcoholic beverage taxes, hotel motel tax, and sales and use tax and refunds.  Current law allows 1% per month (12% annually) to be collected on delinquent taxes. HB960 changes this interest calculation to .542% per month based on an annual calculation of the Federal Prime Rate (3.5%) plus 3%.  This annual interest rate will change when the Federal Reserve announces the new bank prime loan rate each January.
 
If you own property in Powder Springs and have not received your tax bill during this time, please contact the Finance Department at 770-943-1666. Failure to receive a bill does not relieve property owners of the responsibility to make payment by the due date.
