City launches new blog

A major principle of the City of Decatur’s strategic plan is to encourage community interaction and maximize communication between residents, businesses, and government.

With that in mind, the Revenue Division (tax office) at City Hall is launching its own blog right here at  We're following in the footsteps of trendsetting City blogs from the Community & Economic Development Department (The Decatur Minute) and Active Living Department (231 Sycamore St.).

We will offer fresh, informative, non-partisan content about tax and housing developments to City residents. We'll also provide timely reminders about tax deadlines for homeowners, local and national news on property taxes and real estate, topical educational posts about your tax bill, and special announcements.

We also hope to hear back from you and keep the conversation a two-way street. We welcome your feedback, concerns, and questions about property taxes, or just suggestions on ways to improve this blog.

A few words about what this blog is not: this blog will in not be a political platform or forum about tax rates. For concerns about tax rates I would encourage you to contact your elected officials or visit privately-run blogs. Also, the information provided on these pages shall in no way constitute legal advice about your individual tax circumstances. Please seek the advice of a tax professional for dicey personal situations.

For those of you who prefer to get your tax information in person, of course we’re still open for business! We look forward to hearing from you by phone, fax, email, in person, or now through this blog.
