IN ACCORDANCE WITH HOUSE BILL 304
It has been several years since Charlton County last conducted a comprehensive review of all the properties, (residential properties, commercial properties, industrial properties, and agriculture properties). GMASS has been contracted to assist the staff with the property reappraisals. Property owners may notice a contractor or a member of Charlton County Tax Assessors Office inspecting their property starting February, 2020 and concluding in the year 2022 a part of a comprehensive review of all of the county's properties. This revaluation of properties is to ensure that all properties in Charlton County are assessed at fair market value. This is to include grading, measuring, and photographing structures. The inspections will not take place inside homes. The GMASS Appraisers will have a Photo ID and the cars will be clearly marked. If you have any questions or concerns about this process please call our office at 912-496-7437.
