Duties and Responsibilities

The Revenue Commissioner is required to annually locate, class and assess all taxable property within the County, and is responsible for setting fair, uniform and accurate values for each parcel of real and personal property as defined by the Code of Alabama, Title 40.  The Revenue Commissioner is also charged to maintain current ownership maps of the county based on the most recent recorded documents of conveyance.

In addition, the Commissioner and staff work daily with all types of agencies, both local and national, to furnish information for proper identification of each ownership.  Maintaining the integrity of the Commissioner's records and supplying data upon request is treated with the highest priority.

The Revenue Commissioner lists and places a value on all real estate within the county and also on personal property (which includes such items as machinery, office equipment, etc.).  These values are used to establish assessments from which annual taxes are generated. The Commissioner also helps homeowners file for homestead exemptions based on their current status. Different exemptions may be applied once qualifying applications and documentation are provided by the property owner to the Commissioner.

Once all assessments and exemptions are in place, the Revenue Commissioner is responsible for the collection of taxes on real property, personal property and manufactured homes. Tax notices are mailed to each taxpaper via United States Postal Service and become due each October 1.

After January 1 of each year when taxes become delinquent, the Revenue Commissioner must advertise unpaid tax accounts and hold a tax sale once each year to satisfy the collection of property taxes due.  Accurate records must be kept all times, since this office in involved in the collection of taxes that fund a variety of government services.
