Whitfield County Board of Assessors Announces Office Relocation And Personal Property E-Returns Portal

Tuesday, January 19, 2021

The Whitfield County Board of Assessors office has moved out of the County Courthouse and is now located at 303 W. Waugh St., nestled between Krystal and the Dalton Green. 
 
"Please pardon our dust," officials said. "There may be some temporary closures as we get settled into our new space throughout the next week. We will resume normal office hours next week, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. As we continue to practice CDC guidelines due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we encourage taxpayers to visit our website, www.whitfieldassessor.com, to look up property record information and other important information. 
 
"For the first time ever, Personal Property Taxpayers will be able to submit yearly returns through our new Personal Property E-Returns portal. Simply log onto our website and click on the Personal Property E-Returns link, found on our quick links menu, to be redirected to the E-Returns portal. New users will need to create a username to access our portal for the first time.

At registration, Taxpayers must enter the 7-digit account number found on their Personal Property return, which mailed last week, along with other relevant information to set up their account in the E-Returns portal. Once a username is registered, the Taxpayer will be taken through a step-by-step process to review, update and submit their return. A tutorial video on filing a return will be posted to our website and our Facebook page. As always, returns are due on April 1. 
 
"If you have any questions about our move or our new Personal Property E-Returns portal, please contact us at 706-275-7410 or by clicking on the contact us tab on our website."
