Monday is too late to protest house appraisal


Tim Hodges, the Calhoun County Revenue Commissioner, oversees the appraisal office at the Ken Joiner Calhoun County Administration Building. The office has assisted some homeowners in reassessing the value of the structures on their property.

Wednesday, the receptionist at the Calhoun County Appraisal Office patiently assisted a small stream of homeowners who had dropped by to fill out a document that might lower their recent appraisals or who had come to talk with an appraiser.

After June 10, homeowners began receiving their house appraisals, and some were shocked at how much the value had risen. The increase means homeowners will likely pay higher property taxes for the next four years, when the valuations may change again.
