 The Tax Commissioner's Office is the billing and collection entity for State and County Government and the Board of Education


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.


Due to the delay in establishing the 2015 millage rate, January 2016 Motor Vehicle Renewal Notices cannot be processed and mailed in a timely manner.

Please realize renewal notices are a courtesy and are not required to process your registration.

Registrations expire at 12:00 midnight of the taxpayer’s birthday. Failure to renew in a timely manner will result in additional fees.
