The goal of the Union County Assessors Office is to provide the people of Union County with a web site that is easy to use. You can search our site for a wealth of information on any property in Union County.
The Tax Appraiser's Office has five real-property appraisers and one personal property appraiser. This office collects and maintains all data related to property in the county. They keep records of each individual parcel of property, which includes the name, and address of the owners, and the valuation of the land and buildings on each parcel. This information is used to determine property tax bills, which are prepared by the Tax Commissioner.
The information contained herein reflects the values established in the "most current published" tax digest. Please note that the Assessors Office establishes values only. The Union County Tax Commissioner should be contacted with tax bill related questions. Tax statements are mailed and
collected by the Tax Commissioner's Office, which can be reached at 706-439-6017
Taxpayers can file a tax return for taxable property
(both real and personal property) owned on January 1 of the tax year. In Union County,
the time for filing returns is January 1 through April 1. These returns are filed
with the Tax Assessors office and forms are available in that office. The tax return
is a listing of property owned by the taxpayer and the taxpayer's declaration of
the value of the property.
The Board of Assessors
The Board is appointed for fixed terms by the county commissioner(s) in all counties
except one, is responsible for determining taxability, value and equalization of
all assessments within the county. The County Board of Tax Assessors notifies taxpayers
when changes are made to the value of the property; receive and review all appeals
filed; and insures that the appeal process proceeds properly. In addition, they
approve all exemptions claimed by the taxpayer.
County Board of Equalization
The Board is appointed by the Grand Jury, is the body charged by law with hearing
and adjudicating administrative appeals to property values and assessments made
by the board of tax assessors (Note: An arbitration method of appeal is available
to the taxpayer in lieu of an appeal to the board of equalization at the option
of the taxpayer at the time the appeal is filed.)
Specialized Assessment Programs
The most common programs are Conservation Use & Preferential Use Covenants,
Forest Land Protection Act, and Freeport Exemption for Inventory. The application
period for these programs are Jan 1st - April 1st.
