Baldwin County

The Revenue Commissioner is responsible for determining property value (based on guidelines set by the Alabama Department of Revenue which must, by law, be set according to "fair and reasonable market value." Your property may not be for sale, but the local county appraiser must set the value of the property as if it were sold in an "arms length" transaction between a "willing buyer and a willing seller," neither being under pressure to sell.

The Baldwin County Revenue Commission appraises real property (which includes land and improvements) and business personal property (which refers to any items used in any business that are movable or not permanently fixed to the land) annually.

Appraisals are done a year in arrears, meaning appraisals are based on the property the way it was on October 1st of the previous year (for example, 2023 property appraisals are based on the property as it was on October 1, 2022).

Protested Property Values

  • Annual Valuation Notices are completed in late April of every year. Values are posted on the Baldwin County website and available for you to search and review your appraised value and property taxes. 
  • If you disagree with the valuation estimates and choose to protest your property value with the Board of Equalization, you have 30 days from the date on the Valuation Notice. 
  • Property protest information is updated on the website each year, around the time Valuation Notices are mailed.

The Baldwin County Revenue Commission encourages property owners to search and review your property online throughout the year to keep property information up to date.
