The Tax Assessors are responsible for determining the tax digest, which is the value of taxable property in Macon County, and the amount of taxes due according to the state tax code. The Tax Assessors appraise property at fair market value, mail assessment notices annually, maintain tax records and maps, and inspect mobile homes for updated decals.
The tax commissioner does not assess property or set millage rates. The tax commissioner prepares and mails the tax bills and collects the taxes based on the values provided by the Board of Assessors. Questions regarding bill calculations, return mail, late payments, interest, etc. should be directed to the tax commissioner.
The Chief Appraiser and appraisal staff is charged with the annual valuation of all property in Macon County (real estate and personal). Georgia law requires that all property be appraised at "fair market value." This is generally accepted as the value paid by the purchaser, when neither the seller nor the purchaser is under any duress to buy or sell. Analysis of these sales forms the basis for the valuation of similar properties.
Georgia law requires that your property be assessed for tax purposes at 40 percent of the appraised value. This is why it is always important for you to be aware of the value the tax assessors have placed on your property.
A large portion of the operating revenue needed for Macon County comes from the taxation of privately held property. The Macon County Board of Commissioners, the Macon County Board of Education and cities within the county set millage rates each year based on their budgetary needs. The millage rate is then multiplied against the assessed value of your property (less any exemptions) to determine the amount of taxes you owe.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
A geographic information system (GIS) is a computer-based system that is capable of storing, linking and analyzing data that are related by a geographic location. This system allows the users to visualize, question and analyze spatial data. Examples of spatial data include property boundaries, addresses, zoning districts, streets and roads, bike trails, precincts and election districts.
GIS is a tremendously powerful resource which leads to better decision making through improved communication, better record keeping, and higher efficiency.
Questions that GIS can help answer:
- Location: “Where is it?”
- Trends: “What has changed since…?…”
- Patterns: “What spatial patterns exist?”
- Modeling: “What if……”
Recently the County contracted with the Army Corp of Engineers to acquire Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) data for the entire county. This data will be used to create a Digital Elevation Model (DEM), a three dimensional model of the ground, that will be submitted to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). FEMA will use this data along with other data collected in the field to update the County’s Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map (DFIRM). This map is used by insurers to determine if flood insurance is needed and is also used by the county for building and subdivision permits. This is not the only use for LIDAR data, the April issue of GEOWORLD magazine explains how LIDAR is being used for Natural-Resource and Agricultural Management.

Property tax in Illinois is imposed by local government taxing districts (e.g., school districts, municipalities, counties) and administered by local officials.
Market value has been defined by The Supreme Court as the sale price of real estate as agreed upon between a willing buyer and willing seller, with neither being under duress to buy or sell.
Assessment is the basis upon which taxing authorities tax a property. Real property in Illinois is required by Illinois Statute to be assessed at 1/3 of market value.
Exemptions are available in Macon County, which may lower the property's tax bill. These are deducted from the property's assessed value to give the property's taxable value.
Base tax is calculated by multiplying the property's assessed value by the total tax rates applicable to it and is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting from any exemptions would pay.
Current tax represents the amount the present owner pays including exemptions.
Actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement and financial assistance programs or to non ad-valorem taxes. For more information please visit the web pages of Macon County's Supervisor of Assessments and Treasurer or look up this property's current valuation tax situation.
