Our office has mailed the 2021 Assessment Change Notices on July 14th. These Notices have an APPEAL DEADLINE of 5:00pm Friday August 27th, 2021. If you wish to dispute the new 2021 proposed valuation of your property, the minimum requirement for appeal is a letter to the "Bacon County Board of Assessors" office stating your intent of appeal and an opinion of value you feel your property should be valued at by the appeal deadline. It is preferable if you obtain an official appeal form from our office or from the Georgia Department of Revenue website. Either form completed in full will provide all the necessary information for our office to begin processing and reviewing your appeal. Please provide appropriate contact information (phone #) for our staff to contact you to schedule an onsite review of the property. An appeal of property which contains structures and/or buildings (barns, warehouses, processing structures and HOMES) will require a review of the exterior and INTERIOR to ascertain any problems or conditions that may affect the value of the improvement. You may in person or over the telephone contact our staff with any questions you may have concerning the new proposed valuation for your property.

  • In compliance with Georgia law (HB 304), the Bacon County Board of Assessors must give notice to property owners prior to making a site visit. Any building permits, property appeals or property returns will be visited by a staff appraiser. Each staff appraiser will be in a marked county vehicle and will have proper identification.
  • The appraisal staff is conducting property reviews throughout the county. The reviews will include the measuring, listing and photographing of structural improvements on the property for correctness.
  • All property that has sold within Bacon County is reviewed periodically to ensure our records are accurate.
  • Annual inspections of mobile homes will be conducted throughout the tax year.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Did you know?
Georgia's 149th county was named for Senator Augustus O. Bacon, a four-term U.S. Senator who died in office.

Alma's name is an acronym composed from the first letters in the names of Georgia's four state capitals: Augusta, Louisville, Milledgeville, and Atlanta. Alma is the only incorporated municipality in Bacon County.

There are three buildings on the National Register of Historic Places in Bacon County: the Bacon County Courthouse, the Alma Depot, and the Rabinowitz Building.

Alma and Bacon County share a 110-acre recreational area for team sports, swimming and picnicking. Additionally, four city-owned parks and six privately owned facilities provide many recreational opportunities.

There are two wildlife management areas in the county, the Bacon Area and the Whitehead Creek Area, both which allow hunting.
