Property Tax Due in Calhoun County
Property taxes represent a major expense for most homeowners, typically amounting to 1% to 3% of the home's value each year. This recurring expense doesn't go away when you pay off the mortgage. It's a perpetual cost of home ownership. According to Calhoun County Revenue Commissioner Karen Roper, property owners are required to pay property tax. Property tax is the tax assessed on real estate. It is usually based on the value of the property you own and is often assessed by local or municipal governments. Roper says February 5th was their last day to take personal checks for payment of your property tax. Roper adds that the probate judge’s advertising of your name will be on February 26th. March 18th is the day internet payments are stopped, and March 27th is when a full advertisement of the name and legal description is made within The Anniston Star. This tax is mainly used by municipalities for repairing roads, building schools and snow removal, or other similar services. Rates of property taxes and the kinds of property considered taxable by the local government vary somewhat in different municipalities.
