Walker County residents have been sent assessment notices in the mail this week. These notices an show increase in value on average of 30% for property owners, according to the Walker County Government. The assessment notices provide a tax estimate based on last year’s millage rate which is set by bodies such as the Walker County Board of Commissioners, the Walker County Board of Education and city governments. It should be noted that increasing property taxes doesn’t necessarily result in higher property taxes.
Those who wish to dispute the finding on their property assessment have until June 26th to file a written appeal. Appeals should be sent to the County Board of Tax Assessors.
