The Hall County Tax Assessors office mailed personal property tax notices Friday.
Personal property includes business and manufacturing machinery, equipment and inventory, plus boats and aircraft. State law requires the annual notice to include a written explanation of the value of taxable property and an estimate of the property tax bill.
The notice is not a tax bill. The estimate is based on the current year’s assessed value and the previous year’s tax rate. The property tax rate will not be determined until it is approved by the Board of Commissioners by June 30.
The due date for 2012 taxes will be Dec. 1. Bills will be mailed at least 60 days in advance.
Property owners have 45 days from the date of the notice to file an appeal via U.S. mail or in person. Appeal information, interactive appeal forms and more information can be found on the tax assessor’s website.
Property owners have until June 11 to appeal.
The Tax Assessors’ office is prepared to answer questions about the notices or the appeal process through e-mail at email@example.com; by phone at 770-531-6720; or in person at the Joint Administration Building, 300 Henry Ward Way, Suite 203, Gainesville.
