Some Newton tax bills in error

COVINGTON — Some property tax notices that were mailed Aug. 19 to Newton County property owners are incorrect, Tax Commissioner Barbara Dingler said.

Dingler said fewer than 3,000 of the 44,360 notices sent out, or .067 percent, are incorrect. The printing vendor corrected the error and sent new notices on Thursday to affected property owners, she said.
