Senate Bill 346 and your new Notice of Assessment
This Senate Bill charged the Assessor's Office with mailing out assessment notices annually. We also have to provide the taxpayer with an estimate of the taxes; this estimate will be made with the prior year's millage rate. It is designed to be more open for the taxpayer and give the taxpayer an annual notice to review and appeal their assessment if needed.
It also charged the counties to use a uniform assessment notice that is the same in all 159 counties, as well as a uniform appeal form that can be obtained from our office or the Georgia Department of Revenue's website. You may still appeal in writing by letter within the 45 day time frame. You can now choose to take your appeal to the Board of Equalization, Arbitration or before a Hearing Officer.
Please contact our office for more information regarding the appeals procedures.
Our office and staff are striving to be more taxpayer friendly and to assist the taxpayers of Wilkinson County.
If you have any questions or concerns at all about your 2011 assessment notice, please contact our office and speak to one of the appraisers.
Please remember that during this 45 day open assessment time our books are once again open for you to file for and receive covenants that will reflect on your 2011 tax bill.
Should you have any further questions, please contact our office.
