Welcome to the Pickens County Assessors Office Web Site! The 2016 Personal Property Reporting Forms were mailed on December 30, 2015 and reflect a due date of April 1, 2016.  Please make it a priority to fill these returns out accurately and return them to our office. Failure to do so will result in the prior year's information being rolled over and assessed for the 2016 Digest. As taxpayers there are two ways for us to file a return; either we do or we don’t. When an updated return is filed in the required time frame, the taxpayer is giving current updated information to be used for the applicable tax year. When the taxpayer does not file an updated return, the taxpayer is electing that the prior year’s information is true and correct and shall be used as the current tax year information. The time frame for applying for homestead and specialized assessment program exemptions is between January 1, 2016 and April 1, 2016. All homestead applications must be filed and signed in person at our office located at 1266 East Church Street, Suite 121 Jasper GA 30143. Business hours are Monday thru Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Faxed applications will not be accepted. For property owners that have an expired special assessment exemption as of December 31, 2015, please take note that we have mailed your renewal letter. If you qualify for a renewal and  have not received this letter, please contact our office no later than April 1, 2016. Our office is open to the public from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. The goal of the Pickens County Assessors Office is to provide the people of Pickens County with a web site that is easy to use. You can search our site for a wealth of information on any property in Pickens County.

Did you know? Pickens County was created in 1853 from parts of Cherokee and Gilmer counties. Georgia's 100th county was named for General Andrew Pickens, a Revolutionary War soldier. A railroad line built in 1883 from Atlanta, through the valleys and mountain passes of Pickens County to Tate and Nelson, made possible the development of large marble quarries. One of the largest marble veins in the world is in Pickens County, running at least four miles long. It is a half-mile deep and almost that wide in places. Over 60 percent of the monuments in Washington, D.C. are made from Pickens County marble. The Old Federal Road, the earliest vehicular route through northwest Georgia, crossed northern Pickens County at Talking Rock Creek. Several special events take place in Pickens County. Two of the biggest festivals are held in October: the Marble Festival and Heritage Days Festival in Talking Rock. Source: georgia.gov
