Paying Your Property Taxes

The City of Sugar Hill accepts the following payments types: cash, checks, money orders and credit/debit cards.

Cash payments

All cash payments must be submitted in person.

Check Payments

Make checks payable to the "City of Sugar Hill".

If you pay with a check, keep in mind that checks are processed, deposited and debited from your account very quickly, usually the next business day. Before you write a check, make sure your account has enough money to cover it.

If your check is dishonored by the bank, a $35 service fee is assessed in accordance to state law and federal guidelines. In providing a check as payment, you authorize electronic representation if your check should return unpaid. Also, you authorize service charges and processing fees, as determined by law, to be debited from the same account via paper draft or electronic funds transfer.

Return Checks

Any Returned payments will incur a $35 fee. All Stop payments will incur fees.
If using a savings account, please ensure that the account allows debit transactions.
Please ensure that your account is activated and authorized to accept debit transactions.

Online & In Person

Credit card payment can be made online using VISA, MasterCard and Discover. Using a credit card incurs a processing fee of 2.9% (minimum $1).

VISA, MasterCard and Discover debit cards are also accepted over the counter at City Hall for a flat fee of $3.95.

You can also pay taxes online using eCheck, an electronic transfer of funds from your existing bank account for payment. You provide your bank account number, bank routing number and amount, and we handle the transfer electronically. There is a 0.75% service fee for this payment option.

Why is there a processing fee?

Processing fees cover the cost of processing a credit or debit card transaction. The fee is paid directly to the merchant and is not retained by the City of Sugar Hill. These processing fees allow the City to offer credit and debit card options for payment of property taxes.


Mail payments to the City of Sugar Hill, Property Tax Department, 5039 W Broad St, Sugar Hill, GA 300518. Please pay by mail using only a check or money order made payable to the City of Sugar Hill. Do not send cash by mail.

When submitting payment through the mail, include your payment stub. If you do not have one, reference your parcel ID or property address on the check or money order. Include a phone number when submitting payment without a stub.

Mail postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service on the due date is accepted as timely received. Postage meter dates will not be honored as timely if received after the due date. To ensure payments are postmarked timely, we recommend mailing at least seven working days prior to the due date.

Drop Off

Use the drop boxes located outside the City Hall. Drop-off payments must be in the form of check or money order.
