Official Notice to Property Owners
In past years, only property owners whose property was reassessed received assessment notices. Due to new legislation, ALL owners of taxable real property will receive a "Notice of Assessment" that will include a tax estimate along with the value of the property. The estimate is based on the previous year's mill rate, which is subject to change before the actual tax bill goes out later in the year.
For more information regarding an Annual Notice of Assessment, please navigate to our Assessment FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page by clicking HERE.

Press Release from Heard County Tax Assessors (September 8, 2017):

Heard County is currently under contract with the firm Norman Appraisal Services to assist the County Board of Assessors with updating the county tax digest.

A representative from Norman Appraisal will soon be visiting each property in the County. Each representative will have vehicle and personal identification from Heard County. If the property owner is not at home, a county “door hanger” will be left for the home owner to assure accuracy for the interior description.

The field representatives will be taking a front and rear photograph of each structure on the property as well as updating any changes to the property since the last countywide update.

The State Department of Revenue requires counties to do this every 3 years.

If there are any questions, contact the Heard County Tax Assessors office at (706) 675-3786.

Maps being visited in the coming weeks are 0052, 0045, 0044, 0051 and 0043.
