Although the DeKalb County tax office building is closed to customers, it is still open for business and providing online services for the local taxpayer, said Tax Commissioner Irvin J. Johnson via a press release.
DeKalb residents in need of processing various property taxes or motor vehicle documents can continue to submit those documents via fax, mail, email or place the necessary forms in drop boxes located at the Memorial Drive and Dresden Drive locations. The DeKalb County Tax Commissioner’s Office also provides a host of online resources and five convenient kiosks located at local Kroger stores for annual motor vehicle renewals.
“These are truly unprecedented times as the world continues to cope with the COVID-19 threat around the world,” said Johnson. “Our office remains committed to providing our customers with the highest level of service while being fully aware of this serious health crisis. Our office has systems in place to process important tax documents through digital platforms and other means that don’t require you to come by the office.”
On Monday, DeKalb County Chief Executive Officer Michael Thurmond issued an order to restrict public access to government buildings in the wake of the CDC’s guidelines for suggested assembly restrictions, and Governor Brian Kemp declared a public health emergency in Georgia.
