DeKalb County Tax Commissioner Irvin J. Johnson is reminding DeKalb taxpayers that the due date for the first installment of 2016 real estate and personal property taxes is Friday, Sept. 30.
First installment taxes that are not received or postmarked by Sept. 30 will incur a 5 percent late payment penalty, which applies by law.
There are drop boxes located on the front and side of the Central Office, located at 4380 Memorial Drive, Decatur. These may be used for overnight and last-minute drop-offs. Another convenient option is payment by electronic check or credit card at: www.dekalbcountyga.gov/
