Beginning with the 2015 taxes, City of Newnan property taxes will be billed and collected by the Coweta County Tax Commissioner. In the past, City residents received two seperate tax bills with two different due dates. Going forward, all Coweta County residents will receive one tax bill, due and payable by December 1st to the Coweta County Tax Commissioner.
Please note that the City of Newnan will continue to collect all delinquent City taxes for years 2014 and prior. The delinquent taxes must be paid directly to the City of Newnan, not the County Tax Commissioner. The website above is still active for payment of delinquent City taxes. The delinquent taxes can also be paid by check or in person at City Hall, 25 LaGrange Street.
The Newnan City Council sets the millage rate each year in the summer based on digest information provided by Coweta County. The 2015 millage rate is 4.05 mills per thousand dollars of assessed value, down from 4.15 in 2014.
What property is taxed? All real estate and personal property are taxable unless law has exempted the property (O.C.G.A. 48-5-3.) “Real Property” is land and generally anything that is erected, growing or affixed to the land; personal property is everything that can be owned that is not real estate. “Personal property” typically consists of inventory and fixtures used in conducting a business, such as boats, aircraft, farm machinery, motor vehicles and mobile homes. The contents of your household are not normally taxable unless they are used for a home-based business.
