Hall County Commission to discuss raise for tax assessor
Placeholder Image

The Hall County Board of Commissioners discussed the yearly merit increase of the county’s chief appraiser at its work session Wednesday.

Commissioner Bobby Banks said at Wednesday’s work session that he would like the board of tax assessors to repeal Mike Henderson’s raise because of a controversy last year.

The county hired an independent firm to audit Henderson’s tax records after it was brought to light that he had received two homestead tax exemptions and owed taxes to the county.

The tax assessors voted in December to renew Henderson as chief appraiser.

County employees will not receive merit increases this fiscal year. Henderson’s increase is from last fiscal year.

The county commission does not have authority over the tax assessors board, which is an independent board.

The commission plans to discuss the matter and vote at today’s board meeting at 5 p.m. in the Courthouse Annex.
