Property in Morgan County, other than farmland and coal, is to be assessed at a 33.33% median level of assessment, based on the fair cash value of the property. The current level of assessments for Morgan County is 33.33%, after adjustments made for equalization and reassessment. You may check the accuracy of your assessment by dividing your assessment by the median level of assessment, or by taking your assessment multiplied by 3. The resulting value should equal the estimated fair cash value of your property. If the resulting value is greater than the estimated fair cash value of your property, you may be over-assessed. If the resulting value is less than the fair cash value of your property, you may be under- assessed.
You may appeal your assessment to the Morgan County Board of Review. If you believe your fair cash value is incorrect or that the equalized assessed value of your property is not uniform with other comparable properties in your neighborhood, the following steps should be taken:
1. Contact the Morgan County Supervisor of Assessments to review your property.
