Another property tax bill on the way?

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Most of you paid your property taxes last month, but you may need to prepare to write another check soon. When the General Assembly meets beginning next week, legislators will have to decide whether to fund the Homeowners Tax Relief Grant.

If they don't, every property owner in the state will likely be sent a supplemental tax bill.

Dougherty Tax Director Denver Hooten said, "That is the $4.7 Million question. If it is not funded, which it's very possible could happen, we will have to bill each of those 15,000 people for their portion of that credit that was not paid by the state of Georgia."

In Dougherty County, property owners would be responsible for paying close to $300 additional each. If the legislature does not fund the grant, you'll have 60 days from the time the bill is sent to make the payment.
