Darla Eden to Seek Third Term as Hall County Tax Commissioner

GAINESVILLE, Ga. (October 22, 2019) — Darla Eden, incumbent Hall County Tax Commissioner, has announced she will seek a third four-year term to secure a lasting legacy for the operational efficiencies, enhanced service and innovations that she has led at the tax office.

“With service, efficiency and accountability as our foundation, we have worked hard to bring a private-sector best practices mindset to a traditional government agency,” Eden said. “Now I want to reinforce a future legacy that benefits all Hall County taxpayers as the county continues to grow.”

She cites the following primary accomplishments during her first two terms:

• Reduced waiting times at the county tax office
• Greater convenience with online payments and a self-service tag kiosk
• A 99.9 percent real property tax collection rate
• Implementation of the state’s new driver record system (DRIVES)

In addition to operational advances, Eden points to a much more courteous atmosphere in the way that visitors are welcomed with the addition of an information desk at the office entrance.

“Local residents are required by law to meet their tax obligations, but I still believe they should be shown the same respect that any business does for its own customers,” Eden said. “That’s how I was raised and it’s how I’ve always conducted business.”

She credited her staff’s cooperative spirit working with other county departments and their openness to cross-training and new technology for her office’s success in streamlining operations. Looking forward, Eden said she plans to continue her focus on taxpayer service initiatives, including cost-efficient paperless processes and lobbying for state policies benefiting local taxpayers.

“It has been a great honor to serve the citizens of Hall County,” Eden said. “I have the drive and dedication to support the demands of ever-evolving state tax laws on the local level and pledge to keep our taxpayers properly informed. I would very much appreciate their support.”

A lifelong resident of Gainesville-Hall County, Eden brought a professional CPA background to her current position after replacing former Tax Commissioner Keith Echols, who retired in 2012.
Eden’s prior experience included a balance of public accounting, private enterprise, and government sector finance positions.

The Hall County Tax Commissioner Office is an agent for the state in the registering and titling of vehicles and collecting property taxes for local governments and school systems.
