Land tax exemptions can be filed by mail this year

DOUBLE SPRINGS - Land taxes become due on Oct. 1, every year and are considered delinquent after Dec. 31. Those 65 or older qualify for a reduction, but the revenue commissioner’s office has to have a form signed and on file by those who qualify. Every year, the forms have had to be completed in the Winston County Revenue Commissioner’s office. Due to COVID-19 this year, the forms may be completed by mail.
