Oconee County Property Appraisal Department

Mission

The mission of the Property Appraisal Department is to establish fair market values for all real and personal property in the county.  These fair market values are to be compiled into a tax digest for use in calculation of mill rates for the Board of Commissioners, Board of Education and all city governments.  These mill rates are then used by the Tax Commissioner for determining the tax bills each year.
