ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Thursday is the last day for property owners to file property tax returns to try to lower their tax bills.

This prompted a huge turnout Tuesday night at the Hasan Temple where more than one hundred Dougherty Countians attended a meeting to get help doing it.

Real estate attorney Jeremy Lynch spoke to the crowd at the Hasan Temple about the process and answered questions about how to fill out the property tax return form.

Lynch says there's been an overwhelming response.

"This year the response has been much better, if not overwhelming, the past couple of days. Get the form and do you best at filling it out. Get as much help as you can. Ask your neighbor. And just get a form filed," said Lynch.

In the return you list what you think your property value is.

The Board of Assessors will review it and decide whether they agree.

Property tax returns must be postmarked no later than April 1st.
