Print Print this article

The Computing County Official Salaries for 2017 provides step-by-step instructions on how to calculate state minimum salaries for magistrates, probate judges, sheriffs, superior court clerks, and tax commissioners, as well as cost of living adjustments and longevity increases for county commissioners and coroners. These updated salaries become effective on January 1, 2017. If you have not already done so, please forward the guide to whomever calculates payroll for your county. This guide has been reviewed and approved by the County Officer Association of Georgia, the Georgia Sheriffs’ Association and the Magistrate Council.

The guide also addresses compensation, per diems and supplements required or authorized for bailiffs, boards of tax assessors, boards of equalization, circuit public defenders, jurors, juvenile court judges, state court judges, solicitors, superior court judges and voter registrars.

Any questions about how salaries, supplements, cost of living adjustments or longevity increases are calculated for specific officials should be directed to the county attorney.
