SEPTEMBER 15TH DEADLINE FOR E-STATEMENT – Help us reduce the cost of county government – sign up to receive an emailed 2022 tax statement! The deadline for us to code accounts is September 15th. Visit the GCTO website at www.galcotax.com and click the large red button to search for your account(s). At the account homepage, scroll to the bottom and click on Register to Receive Electronic Tax Statements. This feature is especially beneficial for anyone who recently purchased a property or refinanced. Many lenders request tax statements midsummer so property owners who either paid off a loan or refinanced may not receive a tax statement without taking advantage of this option. Please note – failure to receive a statement is not a reason to be forgiven the penalty and interest attached to all accounts February 1. It makes sense to save cents to lower the cost of local government!
