GAINESVILLE - Today is the deadline for filing Real Property Tax Returns, Personal Property Reporting Forms, Applications for Homestead Exemption, and Conservation Use Covenants with the Hall County Tax Assessors Office.

While property owners are not always required to file a return, the following would be reasons to do so:

Reasons to file a Taxpayer Return of Real Property or Personal Property Reporting form:

Request a review of your real estate property appraisal
Report additions or deletions of buildings on your real estate property
Report new acquisitions of personal property, such as business equipment or boats
To make sure existing personal property is depreciated properly

Real and Personal Property forms can be found at hallcounty.org on the Hall County Tax Assessors Office's page under "Forms and Applications." Forms must be received or postmarked by April 1with the official USPS postmark in order to be considered timely.

Homestead Exemptions

The time period for applying for Homestead Exemptions is also January 1 - April 1. Homestead Exemptions are only applicable to the primary residence. There are various exemptions ranging from Regular Homestead Exemptions to Senior Citizens Homestead Exemptions and special Homestead Exemptions for 100 percent Disabled Veterans. A complete list can be found at the Tax Assessors office web page or by contacting the office at 770-531-6720.

Conservation Use Covenant

The Conservation Use Covenant applies to property that is being used in a bona fide agriculture use. Not all properties qualify; however, those covenants that are expiring must reapply on or before April 1, 2014 to continue receiving the full benefits of the covenant. Those that are applying for the first time can apply at this time or during the 45-day appeal period when notices are mailed.

How to find your property assessment

Annual property assessment notices will be mailed in April and May. You will have 45 days to appeal the value.
Visit gispublic.hallcounty.org, search for your address, and use the "i" tool to find information about your property, including the appraised value.
