County works to fix re-eval errors

June 13, 2007

Albany -- Dougherty County property owners have filed more than 2,500 appeals over the new property revaluations, but some homeowners are getting new assessments before starting the appeals process.

The appeal hearings will begin next week, but for some property owners who had errors they may not have to appeal.  The county tax department is working with Tyler Technologies to re-valuate some properties that have obvious errors.  Assessors have re-valuated those properties and sent out new assessments.

"As of today, we've probably sent 47," said Tax Director Denver Collins Hooten. "I just looked it up, that have been done, but we have a number of others that are still in the process.  So, there are probably a lot more than that will be going out as far as corrected assessment notices."

The deadline for the bulk of property owners to file an appeal is June 25th.  If you've received a new assessment you still have 45 days from the date on the new assessment to file an appeal.
