The deadline for paying property taxes in Chattooga County is looming.  Five days before Christmas, Chattooga County property owners will have to pay their taxes or face a penalty.

According to Chattooga County Tax Commissioner Kathy V. Brown, residents can now pay their property taxes online by going to www.chattoogacountygatax.com .   People can use an approved debit or credit card to apy online, but there is a fee for online use.  Another way for people to pay who might no be able to get by the tax office is to write a check and drop it off in the overnight box at the Chattooga County Tax Commissioner’s office located in the courthouse annex building.

In the future residents of Chattooga County will be able to pay for their car tags over the internet according to Tax Commissioner Brown.
