On Monday, June 29, Jefferson County, Alabama property tax notices were issued with an official appeal deadline of July 29, 2020. The values reverted to the original 2019 values despite the possible effects COVID-19 could have had on businesses and property owners in the area. The Alabama Department of Revenue has instructed the county chief appraisers to hold off any COVID-related relief for the 2020 tax year and use the date of value of October 1, 2019. These increases are typically above market, and property owners should consider aggressively pursuing appeals for the 2020 tax year.
