Albany   --  The addition of two Boards of Equalization could help move the Dougherty County property tax appeal process along more quickly.     

With only one appeals board made up of citizens appointed by the grand jury, propoerty owners had long waits for their hearings.      

More volunteers were appointed and trained , and three boards are now hearing appraisal appeals, but because there are so many, not everyone has received notice yet.

"There are a lot of people that have not received the first notice of any type and that is because they haven't gone to the board of tax assessors at this time," said Dougherty County Tax Director Denver Hooten.     

With 3,900 appeals filed, many have not yet made it through the first step in the appeals process.      

It will be the first of the year before the process is complete.
