The Tax Assessor’s Office investigates and values real and personal property subject to taxation in Cook County.
It is our duty and responsibility to keep up with technology, changing tax codes, methods, procedures, and local property values in order to produce an acceptable property tax digest. Counties are subject to financial penalties if the Georgia Department of Revenue finds the tax digest deficient.
Our goal is to apply the property tax code fairly and to reflect goodwill, temperance, and fairness in carrying out our duties.
We pledge to support, encourage, and cooperate with the County governing authority, the Board of Equalization, and the Tax Commissioner’s Office, which collects and distributes the taxes we assess. Working together for the common good, our respective operations use uniform standards in discharging our joint duties.
The Cook County Assessor’s office will be inspecting Cook throughout the county on an ongoing basis. In addition to routine inspections, all Cook that have building permits issued will be inspected. Also, mobile homes will be checked for current decals. This is to be considered notice of intent to enter Cook by the Cook County Board of Assessors and Staff.
