Tax Assessors

Welcome From the Hall County Tax Assessors Office

Welcome and thank you for stopping by and visiting our webpage. I hope that you find everything your looking for. However, if you don't find what your looking for or have any suggestions on how we can improve our webpage please feel free to contact me about that. I would be happy to hear any suggestions you might have.

Currently the appeal period for the 2018 assessments is over. Only those properties which were already appealed are being reviewed. Some revisions were mailed September 21,2018 which have an appeal deadline of October 22, 2018. If you wish to appeal be sure your appeal is dated timely; October 22,2018 is the last day and by law no extensions can be granted. Only the official postmark of the USPS can be used to considered timeliness for appeals received after the appeal deadline. Other property appeals have been forwarded to the next level of appeal, Board of Equalization or Superior Court. If you have any questions about your appeal status please feel free to contact our office.

Through out the year you may notice Hall County Board of Assessors appraisal staff  in your neighborhood or area conducting onsite field inspections. These inspections are being done as a normal part of the property appraisal review process, building permits or in response to an inquiry or appeal you might have made. Hall County vehicles will be clearly marked with emblems, and staff will have picture ID's and business cards. Feel free to question staff for the reason for their visit and produce identification. We appreciate your cooperation with our necessary onsite visits and as always we want to respect your privacy.

As a part of making field inspections due to Building Permits, Appeals, or general appraisal review staff will be reviewing improvements and exterior measurements. Normally there is not a need to come inside your home or place of business but at some time it may be necessary in order to complete the inspection or appeal review. Should you not be at home, the review will still be conducted and an informational door hanger will be left along with the appraisers business card. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the number below and ask for Steve Watson, Chief Appraiser, Kelly McCormick, Deputy Chief Appraiser or John Smith, Residential Staff Supervisor or Sam Knight, Commercial/Urban Land Supervisor.

Responsibilities


The Board of Assessors is a five person board appointed by the Board of Commissioners for terms of 4-years. The Board of Assessors are responsible for determining the tax digest, which is the value of taxable and exempt property in Hall County. The Board of Assessors hire the Chief Appraiser and Deputy Chief Appraiser who in turn hire and manage staff who appraise property at fair market value, mail assessment notices annually, maintain tax records and maps, and inspect mobile homes for updated decals.

Mission


Our mission is to provide accurate, equitable appraisals for the taxpayers of Hall County. Property is appraised at 100% of its fair market value, and taxes are assessed on 40% of that value. The Tax Commissioner sends property owners a bill based on information provided by the Assessors. To view our Mission and Vision statement click here.
