Candler Tax Assessor Information

The Candler County Tax Assessor’s office is responsible for receiving and processing all property tax returns for the citizens of Candler County, Georgia. Taxpayers are required to file at least an initial tax return for taxable property (both real and personal property) owned on January 1 of the tax year. In Candler County, Georgia, the time for filing returns is January 1 through April 1. These returns are filed with the Candler County Tax Assessor’s office and forms are available in that office.

The tax return is a listing of property owned by the taxpayer and the taxpayer’s declaration of the value of the property.Once the initial tax return is filed, the law provides for an automatic renewal of that return each succeeding year at the value finally determined for the preceding year. The taxpayer is required to file a new return only as additional property is acquired, improvements are made to existing property, or other changes occur.

A new return, filed during the return period, may also be made by the taxpayer to declare a different value from the existing value where the taxpayer is dissatisfied with the current value placed on the property by the Candler County Board of Tax Assessors. This serves the purpose of establishing the taxpayer’s appeal rights if the Board of Tax Assessors change the declared value again.
