The three-member Board of Tax Assessors is appointed by the Board of Commissioners for three year terms. The Board of Tax Assessors hires a Chief Appraiser to run the day-to-day operations of the department. The Chief Appraiser and his staff determines what property in the county is subject to taxation, prepares annual property tax assessments, prepares the annual tax digest, examines and corrects errors in all real and personal property tax returns, and ensures that all property is returned for taxes at fair valuations and that the valuations between individual taxpayers are fairly equalized so that each pays as nearly as possible only his or her proportionate share of taxes. In addition, this department also hears taxpayer appeals regarding property tax valuations, maintains county tax records and maps of 19,657 real property parcels, 1,527 personal property accounts, and inspects 323 mobile homes to ensure that the proper decals are attached. Lastly, this department compiles building costs, adheres to policies set by the Georgia Department of Revenue, and provides staff support to the Board of Tax Assessors.
