About half of Baldwin County’s property owners will get valuation notices sent to them in the coming days.
It’s a second year of a mailing that costs about half of what it used to for the county’s taxpayers since the county moved away from annual mail-outs to all property owners.
“It’s very expensive to do that (annual) mailing,” Baldwin County Revenue Commissioner Teddy Faust Jr. said Monday. “We were doing that (mailing) back when property values were going down and down. We mailed it every year because we wanted people to see where their value was and build some confidence with the people.”
Approximately 80,000 notices will be mailed on Wednesday to property owners whose values increases more than $1,000 or if there is a new owner.
