A Message From the Hall County Tax Assessors Office
Through out the year you may notice Hall County Board of Assessors appraisal staff in your neighborhood or area conducting onsite field inspections. 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 Susan Taylor, Appraisal Manager.
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.
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.
All public information is available for review, and copies may be obtained for a nominal fee. We welcome you to visit our office to learn more about the tax assessment process.
