The tax collector says it's time to pay up at Lake Sinclair

Three counties border Lake Sinclair: Baldwin, Hancock and Putnam. Tax bills have now been mailed in all three counties. If you purchased property in 2015 chances are the former owner is the one who got the tax bill.

We've had several sellers contact us with "what do we do with the tax bill?"  We've had them mailed to us to forward or scanned and emailed to us if the seller has the ability and available technology to do that. We pass along to the agent on the buyers side if they are not in our own office and pass to the buyer if it was our buyer.

But the fact remains, not getting your tax bill is not a legitimate reason for not paying or paying it on time. You can contact the Tax Commissioner's office in your county if you did not get your bill yet. The addresses and phone number for all three counties are below

Baldwin County

Baldwin County Tax Commissioner 
 
Address: 121 N Wilkinson St # 112, Milledgeville, GA 31061

Hancock County

Hancock County Tax Commissioner 
 
Address: 64 Courthouse Sq, Sparta, GA 31087

Putnam County

Putnam County Tax Commissioner 
 
Address: 100 S Jefferson Ave # 207, Eatonton, GA 31024

And if you purchased in 2015 and have a mortgage and your taxes are escrowed you will need to send a copy of the bill to your mortgage company as soon as possible. The email address and/or fax number should be on line or on your statement or in your coupon book. But that first year it's important to send them a copy of the bill.  Years that follow you don't have to send it to them, however I send mine every year, just in case.
