Tag office to close; new one opens next week



The Richmond County tag office on Laney-Walker Boulevard will close its doors Thursday, to be replaced next week with a new office on Washington Road.

According to a news release from Tax Commissioner Steven Kendrick, the 925 Laney-Walker Boulevard tag office will serve its final customers Thursday, with a new office in the Publix Shopping Center, 2816 Washington Road, to open next Wednesday.

Customers may continue to handle their tag business downtown – in the tax commissioner’s office – if they choose, however.

“This move is the first in our realignment of tag and tax services that will provide more convenience for the citizens of our county,” Kendrick said.

Starting this summer, the new Washington Road office will offer late hours on select days and a drive-through window for simple transactions.
