Tax Commissioner

The Tax Commissioner's Office is established by the Georgia Constitution, and is responsible for every phase of collection and disbursing ad valorem property taxes. Our staff is separated into two departments.

Property Department

Our Property Department bills, collects and distributes ad valorem property taxes for:

  • Real Estate
  • Personal Property
  • Timber
  • Heavy Duty Equipment
  • Public Utilities
  • Mobile Homes

In addition, this department processes homestead exemption applications and conducts tax sales and submits the current year tax digest to the Department of Revenue for approval.

Motor Vehicle Department

Our Motor Vehicle Department serves as a tag agent on behalf of the Georgia Department of Revenue. They collect and distribute ad valorem tax and TAVT (Title Ad Valorem Tax) for vehicles as well as enforce local laws for registration requirements, insurance, and mobile home ownership.

Laurens County is partnered with Envision Payment Solutions for the recovery of returned checks.  If your check is dishonored by the bank, a service fee will be assessed in accordance with state law. In providing a check as payment, you authorize electronic re-presentment if your check should return unpaid. Also, you authorize service charges and processing fees as allowed by state law to debited from the same account via paper draft or electronic funds transfer."  Envision can be contacted at 1-877-290-5460.
