Due to the recent Notice of Assessments that were mailed out on May 20, 2020, The Walker County Assessor's Office will be resuming work outside of the office. We are currently receiving appeals on property values and we will begin reviewing these properties as soon as possible. For any that are apprehensive about having on-site visits to your property, we would like for you to know that we have been provided the proper PPE (i.e. masks, gloves, etc.) to insure the safety of the occupant and field staff.
Please note that if we have a phone number on file, we will attempt to call you and allow you to prepare for an on-site visit.
If we make contact, we will ask if you wish for us to knock on the door or begin conducting our inspection when we arrive.
If we knock on the door, we will step away from the door and attempt to prevent close contact with the occupant.
At our arrival, we will adequately identify ourselves by showing you our Walker County Assessor's Office Identification Card. We will not attempt to pass you a business card or shake hands for safety reasons.
If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact The Walker County Assessor's Office at 706-638-4823
Our office is open to the public from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
The goal of the Walker County Assessors Office is to provide the public with a web site that is easy to use. You can search our site for a wealth of information on any property in Walker County.
You are hereby notified (and should communicate this notification to any other occupants of your property) that pursuant to O.C.GA48-5-264.1 (a), representatives of the Walker County Assessors Office, with proper I.D., may enter upon your property during normal business hours, for the purposes of collecting accurate data or any verifications thereof due to any permits issued, return of value filing, revaluations (partial or whole), parcel sales, covenants, land splits, 3 year review and appeal reviews. This includes all residential properties, and manufactured home, commercial and industrial properties.
Please contact our office if you have any questions.
