    The Catoosa County Board of Assessors Office will be mailing Annual Assessment Notices the week of

    July 4th. The notices inform property owners the proposed valuation for the 2012 tax year along with

    notice to file an appeal in writing to the Board of Assessors’ Office. The deadline for filing appeals will be

    expires for the 2012 tax year. This year will also see valuations for most properties utilizing new

    appraisal software. The office began conversions in late 2009. Some records have been updated of

    unreturned improvements. The discovery method used was the Accessory Finder Tools program which

    was also used in updating 911 addressing and mapping.
