Homestead Valuation Freeze Exemption - Douglas County voted into law a county exemption that increases as your property is revalued by the Board of Assessors due to the market value.  This new exemption applies only to the county portion of your tax bill (does not affect state, school or city tax) and applies only to your personal home.  Your county exemption will go up to offset the revaluation amount.  Many refer to this exemption as a "tax freeze."  Any improvements to your property will not fall under this new law and will result in an increased assessment on your home.   
 

Douglas County is on the 12-month staggered registration system.  Vehicle tags are sold at 8700 Hospital Drive.  Hours are Monday - Friday, 8:00 - 5:00 except Tuesday from 8:00 - 6:00.

Tag registrations can be renewed online at: https://mvd.dor.ga.gov/tags/rin.aspx?vcounty=057
