Property tax relief available for flood victims


Montgomery County Assessor Betty Burchett Encourages Property Owners Affected By the Flood to File For Property Tax Relief  by September 1st, 2010

Time is running out to apply for tax relief. If your property was affected by the flood and you were back in your home or business before September 1st you can apply for property tax relief.

To qualify for relief the applications must be in the Assessor’s Office by September 1st. If you will not be back in your home or business before September 1st, you do not need to apply. Your property taxes will automatically be prorated back to May 1st under the current legislation.

In order for real and business personal property damaged by the floods to be eligible for the new proration provisions, the affected property must be destroyed or substantially damaged and unfit for use or occupancy for a period of at least thirty (30) days.

Affected real and business personal property owners must apply to the Assessor of Property for the proration by the September 1st, 2010 deadline. The fastest way to apply is to go online at or call our office at 931-648-5709.
