Property Tax Bills Will Be Delayed

Posted: Dec 08, 2015

Due to the delay in establishing the 2015 millage rate, your Property Tax Statement will be delayed. Each year local taxing authorities (Burke County Board of Commissioners and Board of Education) await Public Utility values for Georgia Power, Oglethorpe Power, etc. from the Georgia Department of Revenue Local Government Services. Once these values are in hand we work in an expedited manner to compile the information necessary to receive permission from the State of Georgia to collect property taxes.

We anticipate statements to be ready for collection the last week of December 2015.
