The Tax Assessor’s office determines eligibility and processes applications for property qualified for specialized assessments such as Conservation Use and Preferential Assessment (agricultural, historic, conservation, Brownfield, etc.) and tax-exempt property (churches, non-profit hospitals, etc.).
Tax-exempt status must be approved by the Board of Tax Assessors before tax liability can be removed. Contact the Tax Assessor’s office directly at 706-821-2310 for more information on specialized assessments or exemptions.
For homestead exemptions please contact the Tax Commissioners Office at 706-821-2391 or their website Richmond County Tax Commissioner.
