Assessors Office

The mission of the Assessor's Office, under the direction of the Board of Assessors, is to value all real and personal property in the county at its fair market value. Our office is also responsible for accepting applications for homestead exemptions and other specialized exemptions allowed by law.

Message from the Liberty County Board of Assessors

Assessment Notices have been mailed to Liberty County property owners. What is an Assessment Notice? An Assessment notice is a written estimation of the appraised (Fair Market value) and assessed values of the property described in the notice. Notices are mailed to all Non-exempt property owners every year. The Liberty County Board of Assessors generally mails notices in May. Property Owners or their agents may appeal the valuation within 45-days of the date on the notice. As an assessment notice of the current market value, this notice will include an estimate of taxes based on the most recent year's millage rate and the current year's value. This is only an estimate of taxes, not a bill.  We ask that you address any questions or concerns in a timely manner. The final day to appeal is July 11th: After the 45-day period has lapsed no adjustments can be made.

We strongly encourage our citizens to communicate with us in the following ways:

File for Exemptions

We encourage you to file for homestead and specialized exemptions using the Georgia Department of Revenue forms. You may contact our office for any assistance with these forms by calling our main line. We ask that you please be patient as call wait times may be longer than usual.

Be advised that the filing deadline for these forms is April 1st.

Our Commitment to Our Citizens, Employees & Community

Our office and other local government offices remain committed to serving you, while not compromising the safety and health of our citizens, employees, and the entire community.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, but please know that we are here to assist you as much as possible during these unprecedented times.
