Property Tax Administration

Partnering with the Alabama Department of Revenue, the Government & Economic Development Institute at Auburn University provides an educational program to assist State and county property tax personnel achieve more equitable administration of the property tax laws of the State of Alabama.

The program is designed to enhance appraisal, mapping, and management skills so that participants may be certified by the State. Those eligible to achieve certification are county elected and appointed property tax officials and the Property Tax Division staff of the Alabama Department of Revenue.

Individuals that successfully complete the curriculum and pass a comprehensive certification exam earn the designation of Alabama Certified Appraiser of Real Property, Alabama Certified Appraiser of Personal Property, Alabama Certified Tax Administrator, Alabama Certified Mapper, or Support Staff Level I or II Certificates.

Registration/Cancellation Rule:

Provided that space is available, receipt of the registration form constitutes registration. Written cancellations, received fifteen (15) working days prior to the beginning of the program will be honored with a partial refund of the registration fee, but will be assessed a $50 administrative charge. Due to commitments to instructors and meeting facilities, late cancellations or non-attendance will not be refunded. Substitutions for registered participants may be made at any time.

In the Property Tax program, we have a 30 working days advance notice cancellation rule for IAAO classes since our instructors come from out of state.
