Hamilton County property reappraisal notices to be sent

Hamilton County Assessor of Property Bill Bennett says the first wave of many property reappraisal notices will be sent to residents Friday.

Bennett reported to the county commission today, during a regularly scheduled agenda meeting, to update commissioners on the status of property reappraisals, which his office is responsible for every four years, according to state law.

According to Bennett, about a third of the nearly 150,000 taxable properties in the county were reappraised at a higher value, a third were reduced and a final third remained the same.

Bennett also said property tax revenue remained neutral in 2012, but property sales increased slightly.
