Hall County property assessments in the mail

By AccessWDUN Staff

The Hall County Tax Assessors office mailed notices of current property assessments Friday to all real estate owners in the county.

 This annual notice includes a written explanation of the value of taxable property and an estimate of the property tax bill. 

The 2018 notices include language regarding new service tax districts, which were negotiated as a part of the Service Delivery Strategy (or SDS) that was voted on by Hall County and seven of its municipalities in the summer of 2017 as required by state law (Georgia HB 489) to ensure that services are being delivered in an effective and cost-efficient manner and are not duplicated between County and City governments.  More information about the new service tax districts can be found on Hall County's website at www.hallcounty.org/sds.

As a reminder, a property tax 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 2018 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 the timeliness of any appeals mailed close to the deadline. Appeal information, interactive appeal forms, and FAQs can be found on the Tax Assessors' website at taxassessor.hallcounty.org.

While the actual estimate of tax cannot be appealed, property owners have until May 29 to appeal the property valuation based on value, uniformity or taxability.

County officials say appraisers have been making on-site field inspections to update and verify information not only to residential property but commercial, industrial and agriculture properties as well. Changes in value due to these inspections and updates will be reflected in these notices.

"As is done every year, the Tax Assessors Office has evaluated all of the real property in Hall County to ensure they are assessed fairly and equitably according to state law," Chief Appraiser Steve Watson said.  "Our staff is dedicated to working with any and all property owners who may have questions about their notices or the appeal process."

The Hall County Tax Assessors' Office can be reached via 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.
