Assessment notices are now sent every year, following a change in state law. These are notices only, they are not bills.
An appeal can be made in writing one of three ways:
1) Board of Equalization
3) Hearing Office
We are located on the second floor of the Walker County Local Government Services building, 122 Highway 95 in Rock Spring. Our office is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Our mailing address is:
