The Sumter County Board of Assessors will be conducting a county-wide revaluation of all real property located inside Sumter County for the 2016 digest year. Georgia Law (O.C.G.A. 48-5-264.1) requires property owners and occupants be provided reasonable notice prior to a site visit conducted by or on behalf of the Sumter County Board of Assessors. The visits will begin April 29, 2015.
In accordance with this law, please be advised that your property will be visited by a representative of the Assessor’s office to update property records including building and land information to insure uniformity of assessments. The county representative will have a photo identification badge, a neon yellow vest with “TAX ASSESSOR” and will be driving an appropriately marked vehicle.
If there is any question about the identity of the appraiser or if there are any questions regarding the visit, please do not hesitate to contact the Sumter County Board of Assessors Office at (229) 928-4514.
