Revenue Collection Department
The Calhoun County Tax Collection Department notifies the property owner and is responsible for collecting the correct tax for each parcel of land. Taxes are due at the end of each tax year.
Taxes are due every year October 1st. Taxes can be paid between October 1st and December 31st without penalty. Taxes become delinquent after December 31st. Any unpaid taxes are assessed fees and 1% interest per month beginning in January of each calendar year. All unpaid property is sold at auction in May to the highest bidder. The property is sold with a three year "Right of Redemption". Personal property has no right of redemption.
If you purchase property during the year, you need to make sure the taxes are paid. The tax bill will usually be in the previous owner's name. You (as the new property owner) are responsible for taxes on all property you own, no matter how the bill may be listed.
You may pay by mail and avoid waiting in line by mailing a check or money order to:
Calhoun County Revenue Commissioner
1702 Noble Street, Ste 104
Anniston, Alabama 36201
You may come to the Collection Department located at the Calhoun County Administration Building and pay in person.
Ask your mortgage company to pay your bill.

Failure to pay Property Tax results in the Tax Sale of the property. Property may be redeemed for three years AFTER THE DATE OF SALE. Property may be redeemed, for the total taxes and penalties, by certified check only.
