Assessor’s office representatives to visit communities

FAYETTEVILLE — Representatives of the Fayette County Assessor’s Office will travel to communities around the county next month to provide easier access to the office’s service, according to Eddie Young, county assessor.

“With the price of gasoline at almost $4 per gallon, (citizens can) use this opportunity to save some gas,” Young said in a press release.

Officials will accept applications for homestead exemptions, collect dog taxes, help citizens fill out assessment sheets or simply be on hand to answer questions, he said.

The schedule of office visits is as follows:

  • Oak Hill —  July 1, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., City Hall
  • Pax — July 2, 9 to 11:30 a.m., Town Hall
  • Mount Hope — July 2, 12:30 to 3:30 p.m., City Hall
  • Ansted — July 3, 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., Town Hall
  • Gauley Bridge — July 3, 12:30 to 3:30 p.m., Town Hall
  • Meadow Bridge — July 7, 8:45 to 11:30 a.m., Town Hall
  • Smithers — July 7, 1 to 3:30 p.m., City Hall
  • Montgomery — July 8, 9 to 11:30 a.m., City Hall

Please note that if you are signing up for homestead exemption, you must be 65 years of age or totally and permanently disabled. You must bring valid proof of age or an award letter stating that you are disabled.
