Coffee County Tax Commissioner, Coffee County Georgia
GENERAL TAX INFORMATION
The ad valorem tax, more commonly called property tax, is the primary source of revenue for local governments in Georgia. Ad valorem means "according to value".
The millage rate is a determining factor in the calculation of taxes. (A mill is $1 per $1000 of assessed value.)
The state authorities set the millage rate for state taxes, the county Board of Commissioners sets the millage rate for county taxes, the county Board of Education sets the millage rate for county school taxes and the city authorities set the millage rate for city taxes.
The Tax Commissioner is responsible for collecting taxes based on the assessed value of the property multiplied by the millage rate.
