Storm Damaged Properties Could Qualify For Tax Break

11/9/17 – 5:26 A.M.

If you had property damage from Sunday’s storm you could qualify for a break on your property taxes. Hancock County Auditor Charity Rauschenberg and appraisers are assessing damage from the storm.

To see if you qualify for the temporary tax break, you need to fill out a destroyed property form. It’s available in the auditor’s office and on the auditor’s website. You could save up to 25 percent of the damaged structure’s taxable value.
