About Our Office

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

The Property Tax Division bills, collects and distributes ad valorem property taxes for real, personal property, heavy duty equipment, mobile homes and public utilities. In addition, this division processes homestead exemptions and conducts tax sales. They are also responsible for preparing the tax digest each year.

The Motor Vehicle Division serves as a tag agent on behalf of the Georgia Department of Revenue. They collect and distribute ad valorem property taxes for vehicles as well as enforce local laws for registration requirements, insurance, emissions and mobile home ownership.

Revenue is distributed to the Cobb County Finance Department and the Cobb County Board of Education on a weekly basis. Visit our Property Overview page for more information about the average percentage of revenue collected among our taxing authorities for real and personal property taxes. Of note, mobile home and heavy duty taxes are collected not only for the county, the Georgia Department of Revenue, the Cobb County Board of Education and the county CIDs, but for all six cities in Cobb County.

I called in today because my 2020/21 tag sticker has never arrived. [The associate] answered, assisted and was absolutely exceptional! He answered all of my questions and directed me on how to make this all happen faster and easier. His customer service went above and beyond, thank you [the associate] for all of your help, you’re definitely an asset to that tag office sir!

Best government institution I’ve ever been to! They have a nice computer system to tell you it is your turn. [The associate] seems to manage the tag office and she does AMAZING! I transferred the title of my car from my grandmother to me and I needed to bring: the signed old title, an emissions test and proof of insurance and most importantly my license! I will always go here to renew my registration.

IN AND OUT WITH NEW TAGS IN UNDER 20 MINUTES!! This place is newly renovated, and always has been very fast & efficient. When you walk in the door, there is a kiosk that has you pick a category you are there for. It was very easy to use. I only sat in the chair waiting for about 5 minutes until my number was called and was leaving within another 10 minutes!
