NATCHEZ — Adams County’s assessed tax value is projected to increase approximately $3.8 million this year.
And even if residents didn’t get a notice this year that their property had been reappraised, the process isn’t over.
The Natchez Democrat reports the Adams County Board of Supervisors voted to receive approved tax rolls from County Tax Assessor Reynolds Atkins at its meeting Monday, rolls that increased $3.8 million over last year.
Atkins said the cause of the assessment increase is primarily due to reassessment, something the state requires every four years.
Atkins says next year’s assessment should see similar increases. He says more of the assessments done this year were in the city than in the rural parts of the county.
