Tax Assessor’s Office
The three member Board of Tax Assessors is appointed by the Board of County Commissioners for six year terms. The Board of Tax Assessors hires the Chief Appraiser. The Chief Appraiser and his staff determines what property in the county is subject to taxation, prepares annual property tax assessments, prepares the annual tax digest, examines and corrects errors in all real and personal property tax returns, ensures that all property is returned for taxes at fair valuation, and that valuations between individual taxpayers are fairly equalized so that each pays, as nearly as possible, only his or her proportionate share of taxes. In addition, this department also hears taxpayer appeals regarding property tax valuations, maintains county tax records and maps, inspects mobile homes located in the county to ensure that the proper decals are attached, compiles building costs, adheres to policies set by the Georgia Department of Revenue, and assists the Board of Tax Assessors.
