Conyers, ga— The Rockdale County Tax Commissioner’s Office will operate on a modified schedule Wednesday, Dec. 29 to Wednesday, Jan. 5 due to a statewide system upgrade and the New Year holiday. The lobby will be closed to the public Wednesday, Dec. 29 to Wednesday, Jan. 5; motor vehicle online services and MVD self-service kiosks statewide will be unavailable Thursday, Dec. 30 at 7 p.m. to Monday, Jan. 3; and the office will be closed on Friday, Dec. 31 in observance of New Year’s Day.

The upgrade will make unavailable vehicle registrations and titling services. Vehicle owners with expiration dates in late December and early January are encouraged to renew prior to Thursday, Dec. 30 at 7 p.m. to avoid delays. Property tax transactions will be unaffected during the upgrade and can be completed online at www.rockdaletaxoffice.org.
