A note from Marengo County Revenue Commissioner

I sold this property 6 months ago! Why did I just receive the tax notice??

In Alabama, we tax property a year behind. For example, the owner as of Oct. 1, 2014 is the same person who receives the tax notice on Oct. 1, 2015.
When you purchase/sell property, real or personal, please make sure there is an agreement made between buyer and seller for the upcoming property taxes.
If you need more information on this issue, please call (334) 295-2214. If you purchased the property in the last year, you need to be sure the taxes are paid even though you did not receive the tax notice.
