The Tax Commissioner is one of the four county officers established by the Constitution and is elected to serve four-year terms. Responsibilities include:
- Preparation of the digest
- Performing all functions relating to billing, collecting, disbursing, and accounting for ad valorem taxes collected in the county
- Serving as an agent of the state revenue commissioner for the registration of motor vehicles and mobile homes

The Tax Commissioner’s Office is responsible for issuing vehicle tags, renewal of tag decals, application for titles for vehicles or mobile homes and the billing and collection of ad valorem (property) taxes. We also issue mobile home decals and collect ad valorem taxes on mobile homes.
This office also issues handicap placards. Each placard requires a notarized statement from a doctor attesting to the temporary or permanent disability. These forms are available in our office, or we will be glad to mail you one. There are several options, so please contact our office for details.
Property taxes are due each year on the 20th of December. Interest monthly at a rate determined by the prime interest rate. Penalties accrue each 120 days after the due date and is 5% per adjustment period, with a limitation of 20%. In arriving at the amount of your property taxes, the Tax Commissioner takes the property value as determined by the Board of Assessors and applies the millage rate as determined by the Board of Commissioners. This equals the amount of tax you owe. The Tax Commissioner has no authority over the value or the millage rate.
Mobile home property taxes are due April 1 each year.
Tag renewals are due by the birthday of the titled owner of the vehicle. Renewals can be done not more than 30 days prior to the birthday. These can be done in person, online or by mail. If done by mail, a $1 fee applies per renewal.
We have property ad valorem and mobile home tax digests available for several prior years, as well as the current year, for public use. You can also click here to access property tax information. Tag information is confidential and cannot be released to the public.
Our goal is to provide accurate information in a timely and courteous manner. If we fail to meet your expectations, please e-mail the Tax Commissioner.
