The Walker County Board of Assessors has contracted with LMC Inc. to perform property reviews throughout the county. They will be working primarily in the incorporated areas. LMC representatives will have a Walker County Assessors Office identification card with them. They will not ask to enter your home. As always, you may call the Assessors office at 706-638-4823 to verify their credentials.
