In light of the coronavirus pandemic and its social distancing requirements, Hall County’s tax bills — which were supposed to be mailed out April 10 — have been delayed until May 1.
“We are delaying this year’s mailing to be consistent with what other counties are doing statewide,” Chief Appraiser Steve Watson said. “Although Gov. Kemp’s shelter in place order has been extended, our staff is working remotely and will be able to assist property owners with questions and can help guide them through the appeal process as needed.”
County officials would like to remind residents that a property tax assessment notice is not a tax bill. The estimate of taxes on the notice is based on the current year’s assessed value and the previous year’s tax rate.
The 2020 property tax rate will not be determined until it is approved by the governing authorities, the county, schools and cities.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Hall County Board of Assessors has approved electronic appeals. Property owners may now exercise their right to appeal via email to email@example.com or by fax at 770.531.3968. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 770-531-6720.
