Jan. 1 – April 1 is the time period for Hall County property owners to file for Homestead Exemption, a Personal Property Reporting Form, sign up for an Agriculture Covenant or file a Taxpayer Return of Real Property with the Hall County Board of Assessors Office. Reasons to file a Real Property Tax Return, a Personal Property Reporting Form, apply for a Homestead Exemption or the Conservation Use covenants are as follows:
If you haven’t already done so. There are several different types of homestead exemptions ranging from Regular Homestead Exemption, Senior Citizens, Total School Tax, and Disabled Persons and Disabled Veterans Exemption. Only the Regular Homestead Exemption can be applied for online. To do so go to hallcounty.org then to the Tax Assessors page and look for the “Online Regular Homestead Application” link. All other Homestead Exemptions must be applied for in person at the Tax Assessors office at the Hall County Government Center.
If you are the owner of a Boat, Jet Ski/Wave Runner, Aircraft or a Business you are required to file the Personal Property Reporting form on or before April 1. It is important to file so to ensure that your information is correct and you get a fair assessment.
If your property qualifies you can apply for the Conservation Use covenant. Property that is being used in a bona fide agriculture process qualifies for this agriculture covenant assessment reduction. Certain rules and qualification requirements apply.
While not necessary you might want to file a Taxpayer Return of Real Property if you would like your real property valuation reviewed for 2018. If you still have any damage to your property as a result of the recent storms related to Hurricane Irma, please let the Tax Assessors Office know as adjustments could be made depending on the severity of the damage.
The Hall County Board of Tax Assessors office is located on the first floor at the Hall County Government Center at 2875 Browns Bridge Road.
If you are unsure what you should do or which exemption you should apply for you can contact the Tax Assessors office at 770-531-6720 and we will advise you of the best course of action for you.
