Tax commissioner advises property tax bills are being sent

Troup County Tax Commissioner Shane Frailey wants to remind all taxpayers that real and personal property tax bills for 2018 are in the process of being sent out and will be due on Nov. 15, 2018, according to a press release sent by his office on Monday.

Payments can be made in person or by mail at 100 Ridley Ave, Lagrange, GA 30240.

Frailey said he also wants to remind all citizens that for convenience the county has a secure drop box located in the drive as you exit the public parking lot area of the government center on Ridley Ave. The use of MasterCard, Visa or Discover is available for payment purposes as well as cash or check. You may also pay online at Troupcountytax.com or by calling (855) 508-6636.

Anyone who purchased property after Jan. 1, 2018, may not receive a tax bill, due to the bill being in the previous owner’s name.

Please call (706) 883-1620 for any questions about taxes owed on property purchased after Jan. 1, 2018, and the Troup County Tax Office will give you the tax amount due or mail you a new owner’s bill.   

In other business, the tax office will have a representative at the Hogansville City Hall on Monday Nov. 5, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and at West Point City Hall on Nov. 6, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for convenience of accepting payments.
