Today is the deadline for property owners in unincorporated Hall County to file their tax returns, and that’s no April Fool’s Day joke.
Though not all owners of real and personal property will need to file a return, there are several reasons to do so, including to review property appraisals and report any new purchases or sales of real estate and business equipment.
Today is also the deadline for filing homestead exemptions.
And property owners receiving conservation use credits on their agricultural land must reapply by today for expiring covenants in order to continue receiving full benefits and tax breaks.
Annual property tax assessment notices will be mailed in April and May. A 45-day appeal period will follow once all assessments have been sent.
A complete list of applicable homestead exemptions, as well as additional information on tax notices and returns, can be found on the Hall County Tax Assessors Office website at http://www.hallcounty.org/239/Tax-Assessors or call 70-531-6720.
Meanwhile, the state’s annual registration renewal period for corporations also ends today.
Georgia law requires all corporate entities to file annual registrations with the Secretary of State’s office and pay the renewal fee. Businesses that fail to renew by the deadline will be charged a $25 late fee and risk being administratively dissolved.
Customers are also able to file hard copy annual registrations with a check or money order by mail to P.O. Box 23038, Columbus, GA 31902.
