Monday afternoon the Lauderdale County Board of Supervisors convened as the Board of Equalization, which means they will be able to hear property tax disputes over the coming weeks.

Tax Assessor James Rainey presented the tax rolls for the year to the board Monday. Residents now have the chance to come to the Chancery Clerk's office to view their property taxes for the year.

"We're letting the general public know if they want to view their taxes for 2012-2013, they can go to the Chancery Clerk's office," explains District 4 Supervisor Joe Norwood. "If they agree with them fine; if they don't, they can fill out a form and request a hearing before the Board of Equalization."

The board will take any information under advisement and reassess the property. Taxes could go down, stay the same, or even go up.

Residents have until Aug. 6 to file a dispute.

"And we'll take it under advisement and go back and reassess the property and make sure," Norwood said.
