The Tax Commissioners provides the
following services for Ben Hill County Residents:
The Tax Commissioner is an elected Constitutional Officer
responsible for every phase of collecting property taxes, from
preparation of the digest, billing, accounting and disbursements.
Property taxes include those assessed on real estate, public
utilities and ad valorem taxes on motor vehicles and mobile homes.
These collections are disbursed to state, county, school and city
As a tag agent for the State of Georgia, the Tax Commissioner is
also responsible for the collection of all taxes, fees, and
penalties for motor vehicles applicable under the Georgia Code. The
Tax Commissioner enforces all regulations mandated by the state.
A large percentage of the revenue realized by the Ben Hill County
Board of Commissioners and Board of Education is generated from ad
valorem taxes collected by the Tax Commissioner. The financial
stability of these institutions largely depends upon the efficient
operation of the Tax Commissioner's office. The City of Fitzgerald
also benefits from taxes collected on motor vehicles, mobile homes.
