The Tax Collector works together to appraise real and personal property within George County, administer homestead applications, and generate property maps. All property values and exemptions are administered as of an effective lien date of January 1 each year.

One common misconception is that the Assessor/Collector determines the County's budget and tax rates. This is not the case. The Board of Supervisors, City Councils, and the School Board set the budgets for their respective jurisdiction and set the tax rates to generate the needed revenue.

The Offices of Tax Assessor/Collector were established by the Mississippi Constitution (Article 5, Section 135). The office is elected for a four year term by the county at large. 

Tax Collector

Mrs. Lena Jordan was appointed Interim Tax Collector on May 03, 2021 by the GC Board of Supervisors. She will serve in this role until the successful completion of the Special Election in Nov. 2021.
