Taxes are due Monday

Monday, Dec. 20, 2010, is the deadline to pay your ad valorem taxes on time without penalty or interest, but the majority of taxpayers are apparently waiting until the very end to pay the piper.
As of the close of business Monday, Grady County Tax Commissioner Phyllis Gainous reported that of the $13,164,810.61 billed, only $4,945,121 had been collected, which is right at 38 percent.
Tax office officials say that between now and Monday the collections will greatly increase.
Mrs. Gainous says roughly $8 million will come in the remainder of this week and early next week.
The list of the top 25 taxpayers in the county this year includes some new names, including The Village of Wedgewood, Citizens Bank and Capital City Bank.
Mrs. Gainous says that tax exemptions regarding timber and forest land resulted in much of the shifting on the list of the county’s top 25.
These 25 taxpayers combined will pay $1,385,663.94 or basically 10 percent of the total taxes due.
If you have questions about your taxes or if you need to pay your taxes in partial payments, contact the tax commissioner’s office at 229-377-3322.
