Sheila Moran was recently appointed as the Coweta County Deputy Tax Commissioner. Sheila, a 21-year veteran of Coweta County Government, will oversee the financial aspect of the Tax Commissioner’s Office. She will handle audit requests and will be more involved in day-to-day operations and personnel.

“I’m excited for this new opportunity,” shares Sheila. “It is an honor to work for our county and I’m looking forward to serving our citizens and my team in a greater capacity.”

Sheila began her career with Coweta County in 2002 in the Finance department, working in Accounts Payable and then as a Cash Manager. When the role of Tax Accountant opened up in the Tax Commissioner’s Office in 2019, she was ready for a new opportunity and has been there since.

She has high expectations for our staff and the service we provide to the community. I look forward to working with her for many years to come.”

The Tax Commissioner’s Office is responsible for the collection and distribution of taxes. The types of property taxed include heavy duty equipment, mobile homes, motor vehicles, personal property, public utilities, real estate and timber. The taxes collected are disbursed to the State of Georgia, School System, County and Cities. These funds are used to maintain and operate services for the citizens of Coweta County such as schools, roads, recreation, police, fire rescue, ambulance services, public health, the judicial system, the jail and correctional institution.

As Sheila shares, “Our department plays a pivotal part in supporting other divisions that provide crucial services to our citizens. It’s nice to know your place in the big picture and that what we do impacts our citizens because at the end of the day, our boss is the citizens we serve.” 

Sheila has lived in Coweta County for 30 years. She is married and enjoys spending time with friends, family and traveling.
