What an Assessment Notice Is
An Assessment Notice is a written explanation of the appraised and assessed value of the property described in the notice. Notices are mailed to all property owners every year. The Hall County Board of Assessors generally mail notices in two batches. Real Property notices are mailed by the second week of April and Personal Property notices (Businesses, Boats & Aircraft) are mailed the second week of May. Property Owners or their agents may appeal the valuation within 45-days of the date on the notice. An estimate of the current year tax is included on the notice..

Undeliverable Assessment Notices are assessment notices that were returned by the United States Postal Service as being undeliverable. Every attempt has been made to determine the correct mailing address and in some cases re-mailed only to have some notices returned again. The following list is all those assessment notices which have been returned so far and considered undeliverable. Per Georgia Code Section 48-5-306 a public list of undeliverable assessment notices are posted on the 3rd floor at the Hall County Court House.

What to Do When You Receive an Assessment Notice
Now that you have received your revised assessment notice from your appeal you may wonder what your options are. You actually have 3:
Accept the New Value
If you accept the newly revised value and want to get a revised tax bill quickly, simply do the following; State in writing that you accept the new value. You can do this in person, via regular mail, or email. Make sure you include the parcel number (map code), property address, and owner name.
If you have any questions about the process contact the Tax Assessors office at 770.531.6720, by email, or come by the office at:

Appeal the Revised Value
If you still do not agree with the new revised value you can appeal further to the next level of appeal, The Board of Equalization. To appeal further you must do so in writing no later than 30 days from the date of the notice.
The time to appeal will expire 30-days from the date on the notice. Once this time expires and/or you have not already asked us to do so we will forward the new valuation to the Tax Commissioners office for re-billing. If you have already paid your tax bill one of 3 things will happen; you will either get a revised tax bill, a refund, or you may owe additional tax. If you have any questions about which of these three things you may be entitled to just contact or come by our office.
