Property value notices headed to residents

— Clayton County residents will soon find out how much money their homes are worth.

Chief Tax Appraiser Rodney McDaniel announced in a written statement that 88,538 valuation notices for 2013 were mailed to residential and commercial property owners April 26.

Notices for personal property — such as businesses, boats and planes — are expected to be mailed Friday.

Residents and business owners can also go online to www.claytoncountyga.gov/departments/tax-assessor/property-search-information.aspx to search property records, including home values.

The notices will tell property owners the value the county has assessed their homes and businesses to be worth, as well as the corresponding ad valorem tax.

Money collected from the ad valorem tax will be split between the school system and county and state governments.

Deadlines to appeal the valuations are June 10 for residential and commercial properties and June 17 for personal property owners.

The appeals must be mailed, faxed or delivered in person to McDaniel’s office. The office is located on the second floor of the P.K. Dixon Annex, 121 South McDonough St. The fax number is 770-477-4566. Office hours are 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
