Tax Billing Procedures For Business, Personal, And Real Estate Taxes
A 30-day notice is mailed to delinquent taxpayers after the delinquent date notifying them of our intent to record a lien on their property in the office of the clerk of Superior Court if the balance is not paid within those 30 days. Once the delinquent tax balances are recorded in the office of the Clerk of Superior Court, collection procedures begin which can result in the sale of the taxed property at public auction at the Augusta-Richmond County Judicial Center, John H. Ruffin, Jr. Courthouse located at 735 James Brown Blvd. on the first Tuesday of the month.
In addition, the recording of the tax balance is reflected on the credit record of the taxpayer. For more information view Tax Levy Sales.
