The Gilmer County Assessors Office is now accepting the following: taxpayer’s returns of real property, business personal property returns, Homestead Exemption applications and conservation use program applications. 

The deadline for filing is April 1, 2015. 

Exemptions, returns

Any owner wishing to declare a change in their property or request a combination can do so by filing a taxpayer’s return of real property. 

Homestead exemptions are available to full-time residents not currently claiming a homestead exemption elsewhere.

Homestead applicants must provide a current driver’s license showing the address of the home for which they wish to apply. 

Applicants age 62 or older must provide proof of household income. 

The school tax homestead exemption is for applicants age 65 or older as of January 1, 2015. 

This exemption is not income based. However, to qualify for additional relief off the county tax portion, you must provide proof of household income. 

Conservation use program (CUVA) applications are available for owners claiming bona fide agricultural use. Rules and regulations are available upon request. 

Business personal property returns have been mailed and are due by April 1, as well. Returns filed after this date may be subject to penalty. 

Boat owners

Marine personal property returns have been mailed to all boat owners in Gilmer County. 

Along with the return, owners will receive an audit notification letter.

Owners need to provide the information requested or verify all information listed such as make, model, year and motor information. 

Boat owners may provide additional documentation to support their values. This could include, but is not limited to, current pictures. 

If the boat has been sold, owners need to provide proof of sale. 

All returns are due April 1.
