Grace period for 2011 taxes expires soon

The City of Decatur’s second installment property tax bills were due on Dec. 20, 2011.  No penalties or interest have been added to unpaid balances yet, but this grace period will end on January 5. 

If you haven’t already done so, please pay by Thursday to avoid additional fees.

If you aren’t sure whether or not you have paid, please check our tax look-up website at www.decaturgatax.com, or call us at 404-370-4100.  Due to mail, banking, posting, and data processing times, please allow 7 to 10 business days for payments tendered to show up on your tax records online. 

Our office will be open until 5:00 p.m. every day this week.  We accept payments through checks by mail; through credit cards or Paypal accounts online; and cash, check, or credit in person.

Postmarks will be honored on checks mailed to:

City of Decatur Lockbox
P.O. Box 945650
Atlanta, GA  30394-5650

If you intend to overnight a payment or visit us, our physical location is City Hall, 509 N. McDonough St., Decatur, GA  30030.  Please note that we do not have a secure after-hours drop box.
