Hall County commercial, industrial tax notices mailed today

POSTED: April 11, 2014 12:31 a.m.

Annual tax assessment notices for about 4,200 commercial and industrial properties in Hall County were dropped in the mail today, but it’s not time to pay up quite yet.

The notices contain the assessed value of taxable property and an estimate of this year’s tax bill.

Because the 2014 property tax rate has not yet been determined, the estimate is based on the assessed value and last year’s tax rate. Actual tax bills typically are mailed in the fall, with payments due by December.

Property owners have until May 27 to appeal the property valuation, but cannot protest the estimated tax. Appeal information, interactive appeal forms and FAQs can be found on the Hall County Tax Assessors Office website.

County tax assessors are currently engaged in a “real estate equalization project,” which includes reviewing about 6,800 lakefront residential property values and how they align with respective property sales.

There are more than 65,000 taxable residential parcels in the county, and tax assessment notices for these properties will be mailed May 16. County officials will hold a second public meeting on the lakefront reassessments at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Mulberry Creek Community Center, 4491 J.M. Turk Road.

“Next year, (commercial and industrial properties) will be going under similar scrutiny and review as all other properties have been going through for the past couple of years,” said Chief Appraiser Steve Watson.
