Welcome to the Tax Commissioner’s Website

The information in this web site is intended to aid you in understanding your rights and responsibilities relating to property tax in Franklin County. This web page cannot cover the many and complex tax laws in Georgia. If you have questions or need clarification, please contact us. My staff and I are here to help you.

Please review our frequently asked questions, our general information on property taxation, and  information on tax liens and tax sales.

The site does not necessarily cover every aspect of property taxation and should not be relied upon as a legal source of information. Please refer to the specified code sections for specific limitations. The Georgia General Assembly sponsors a web site where the annotated version of the official code of Georgia can be viewed.

The Franklin County Tax Commissioner’s Office should be contacted for more information or inquiries about billing and collection of property taxes, and the Franklin County Board of Tax Assessor’s Office should be contacted for more information on property values. The phone number for the Tax Assessor is (706) 384-4896.
