The major responsibility of Property Tax Billing is to ensure effective management of all taxes levied by the City which includes: real estate, personal property, Kennesaw Downtown Development Authority (KDDA), and public utilities.

Assessed values are established by the Cobb County Tax Assessor’s Office and are currently calculated at 40 percent of the fair market value.

The public utility assessments are supplied to the City by the State Revenue Department.

Taxes on all the above categories are levied in the fall of each year on the assessed valuation of property of the preceding January 1 and are due sixty (60) days from the date of billing.

Ad Valorem taxes on motor vehicles and mobile homes are collected by the Cobb County Tax Commissioner and remitted to the City.

The Tax Division maintains a monthly ledger on these tax payments as they are received.
