Hall County Commissioners host meeting to discuss tax digest

Hall County, GA--  (submitted by Nikki Young)  

The Hall County Board of Commissioners will host a meeting of all taxing authorities in Hall County to discuss the 2011 tax digest. The meeting is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. March 30 at the Mulberry Creek Community Center, 4491 JM Turk Road, Flowery Branch. Several members of the Board of Commissioners plan to attend, and the meeting is open to the public.

The purpose of the meeting is to bring together the Board of Assessors, Tax Commissioner and county Financial Services to provide information to all Hall County taxing authorities on the 2011 tax digest. New state law requires that all taxpayers be sent an assessment notice yearly. This new requirement likely will lead to many more tax appeals in 2011, which could then lower the taxable values on the digest. In addition to the legislative changes, local governments also face declining values in real estate that continue to impact Hall County property tax revenue.

“During these challenging economic times, we are all struggling to balance our budgets while still striving to provide quality services to the citizens of Hall County. Clear and timely revenue planning information is critical to all of us,” said Lisa Johnsa, Hall County Interim Finance Director.
