Residential & Commercial Property Appeals

The time in which you can appeal your property value expires 45 days after a Notice of Assessment is issued. The majority of notices were issued in April 2014 and the right to appeal expired May 2014. Please check your Assessment Notice date if you think you may still have appeal rights.

Please note: Property owners received their tax bill from the Tax Commissioner’s Office in August. If your property was under appeal, a partial property tax bill was issued to you by the Tax Commissioner’s Office. Your partial tax bill is due by the due date on your bill. Once your property appeal is settled, the Tax Commissioner’s Office will determine if a supplemental bill or a credit is required depending on the appeal value decision. Please contact the Tax Commissioner’s Office for further information about your tax bill 770.822.8800.

Amended Assessment Notices

Once our appraisal staff has reviewed your residential or commercial appeal, one of two actions will occur:

  • If a determination is made to revise your value, you will receive a written Amended Assessment Notice by US mail. If you remain in disagreement with the revised value and desire to continue the appeal to the Board of Equalization, you have 30 days to notify us of your rejection of the change in value. You may indicate your acceptance or rejection of the change in value electronically on our website (click the link below) or by US mail. Your right to reject the new amended value and continue the appeal will expire 30 days from the date of the amended notice. If you reject the new amended value, your appeal information will be automatically forwarded to the Clerk of Court’s Board of Equalization to schedule a hearing for you. You will be notified by mail of your scheduled hearing date.
  • If the appraisal staff does not revise your value, you will be notified by US mail of your appeal being forwarded to the Board of Equalization. No action is required of you at this time.

Motor Vehicle Title Ad Valorem Tax

The Georgia Department of Revenue produces an estimate of value, which is required for use in determining the amount of “title tax” you owe upon the transfer of a vehicle. Effective January 1, 2014, the new title tax increased to 6.75 percent. If you disagree with the value used, you must appeal to the Board of Assessors within 45 days of the payment of the tax.

Please use the state’s PT311A-MV form to start the process. Submit copies of the registration documents and photos of the vehicle along with the completed appeal form. Photos need to include all four sides, inside, damage (if any), and odometer reading. If this vehicle was recently purchased, please include the purchase price on the appeal form or provide a copy of the bill of sale. The appeal package may be mailed, emailed, or delivered to the Assessors’ Office. You may also schedule a visit to our location for a physical inspection. For more information, please call 770.822.7288 or email
