Tax challengers should show up

July 27, 2007

Albany --  If you appealed your property assessment to the Board of equalization, you better check the mail for a hearing date.  

The hearings just started for the almost 5,000 appeals the Dougherty County tax office received. Property owners will receive a notice of their hearing date.

The first 51 appeals to the Board of Equalization were denied, many because the property owners didn't show up to the hearing. They'll all get a certified letter detailing the decision.  

"They will receive a notification that will give them a date and time," said Tax Director Denver Hooten.  

 If you want to make sure your tax appeal was received by the Board of Equalization or you need to check on a hearing date, just call the tax office.
