Property assessment notices to be mailed Friday

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - The Hall County Tax Assessors office will mail Residential and Agricultural Real Property notices and Personal Property notices of current assessment on Friday, May 16.

Real property is land and any improvements thereon. Personal property includes business and manufacturing equipment and inventory. As required by state law, this annual notice will include a written explanation of the value of taxable property and an estimate of the property tax bill.

The assessment notice is not a tax bill. The estimate of taxes on the notice is based on the current year's assessed value and the previous year's tax rate. The 2014 property tax rate will not be determined until it is approved by the various governing authorities, the County, schools and municipalities.

Property owners will have 45 days from the date of the notice to file an appeal via U.S. mail or in person. Only the USPS postmark can be used to determine timeliness of any appeals mailed close to the deadline. Appeal information, interactive appeal forms and FAQs can be found on the Tax Assessos' website at taxassessor.hallcounty.org.

While the actual estimate of tax cannot be appealed, property owners have until June 30 to appeal the property valuation based on value, uniformity or taxability.

The Tax Assessors' office is prepared to answer questions about the notices or the appeal process through e-mail at assessor@hallcounty.org, by phone at 770-531-6720, or in person at the Hall County Government Center, 2875 Browns Bridge Road, Gainesville.
