PRESS RELEASE - HARRIS COUNTY TAX ASSESSORS OFFICE
Harris County Tax Assessors Office
October 1, 2015
The Harris County Tax Assessor's Office is required by the Georgia Department of Revenue to periodically update their records on all properties and homes within the county. Appraisers from our office will be walking door to door in many of the subdivisions and rural areas over the next few months measuring houses and gathering information to update the records.
The appraisers will identify themselves upon arrival at your home. They will be wearing Harris County attire, will arrive in a Harris County vehicle, and will have proper identification. If you are not sure that the person works for the County, please do not hesitate to call our office at 706-628-5171.
The questions asked by our appraisers will simply be general information regarding your home such as the number of rooms, types of flooring, heating and air sources, and overall condition of the home. If you have an upper story or basement in your home, the appraiser may need to gather the measurements of that area to properly calculate the square footage of your home. All other measurements will be taken from the exterior of your home. Please help us to gather accurate information so that we may provide proper appraisals for your area.
The Harris County appraisers are courteous professionals trained to perform their jobs in a timely manner. They will gladly answer any questions you may have. We also will work within your schedule to update our records if needed. If the appraiser leaves a tag requesting information about your home, please call our office at your earliest convenience. Our friendly staff will be happy to assist you with your information or have the appraiser return your call. You may also visit our website at qpublic.net/ga/harris to view records pertaining to your property and to view sales within the county. Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Thank you for your assistance!
