Only 27 percent of county taxes have been collected

With only 16 days until taxes are due, only 27% of the total taxes billed for 2012 have been collected.
Grady County Tax Commissioner Phyllis Gainous reported Tuesday that her office has currently collected $3,524,284.21 out of the $12,856,012 billed to county taxpayers.
Of the total collected to date, $1,691,251.84 has been disbursed to the Grady County Board of Education; $1,442,169.42 to the Grady County Board of Commissioners; $358,675.38 to the city of Cairo; $10,455.78 to the city of Whigham; and $21,731.79 to the state of Georgia.
Tax officials are not pessimistic that less than 30 percent of the taxes have been collected since mortgage companies will pay the bulk of the taxes near or on the due date.
“It’s like this every year,” Tax Commissioner Gainous said.
Thursday, Dec. 20, is the date taxes are due without penalty and interest.
