Clarke County Revenue Commissioner Tyler Montana Prescott has announced a new website to assist the citizens of Clarke County in accessing property tax information.

This new website will allow taxpayers to search and view property tax information and make payments online from the comfort of their home by using a debit card, credit card, or e-check. A small fee is charged by the credit card processing company and the county receives no money from this fee.

Taxpayers can go to venue to access information from the Revenue Commissioner’s Office. On this page, are links for information on claiming a homestead exemption or changing mailing addresses.

To view tax amounts or to make a payment online, click the blue PAY ONLINE button. From there, taxpayers can search by name, parcel number, PIN number, or account number and place all parcels they are wishing to pay in a shopping cart for easy payment.

In addition, this website will allow taxpayers to see 12 years of tax payment history and appraised values. The website is updated instantly when a parcel is paid, so taxpayers will be able to access up-to-the-minute payment information.

Commissioner Prescott reminds taxpayers that all property tax bills must be paid no later than Dec. 31st. Manufactured home renewals must be paid by Nov. 30th. Tax bills and manufactured home renewal notices were mailed last week and taxpayers should be receiving them in the mail.

Prescott also reminds citizens to return their exemption renewal letters that were mailed out in September. Failure to return these notices by Dec. 31st will result in the exemption being removed for next year.

Contact the Revenue Commissioner’s Office at (251) 275-3376 with any questions or concerns.
