City mails out 8,000 tax bills

Decatur’s property tax bills for the second installment of 2013 were mailed out a little over a week ago.  If you haven’t received your paper bill yet, please call us at 404-370-4100 to confirm that we have the right mailing address on file, or you can access your bill online.

Please note that we do not send paper tax bills to mortgage companies, so you should forward your bill to your lender if your taxes are paid out of escrow. 

If you have recently sold your property but have received a bill from us, keep in mind that DeKalb County does not instantly notify us of changes in ownership.  Please forward your bill to the new owner so they are aware of the taxes owed before the payment deadline passes on Dec. 20.

Your second installment bill reflects the total year’s billing—including all taxes, fees, and payments made during the first installment (between April and June).  If you have any questions about the calculation, please give us a call or a visit!
