General Information
Personal Property Tax Returns
We accept Personal Property Tax Returns from January 1 to April 1. If you own a business with furniture, fixtures, machinery, equipment, and/or inventory, an airplane, or a boat and/or motor, you must file a return. You are responsible for reporting all taxable personal property or penalties will be assessed. We mail Personal Property Tax Return forms as a courtesy, but not receiving one does not relieve your responsibility for filing a return.

Distributors and/or manufacturing businesses may be eligible for an inventory exemption. Visit the Business Personal Property webpage for more information.

Tangible Business Assets, Aircraft, and Marine Appeals
Georgia's property tax statutes states, "the time for filing notice of appeal shall be 45 days" from the date of the Annual Notice of Current Assessment. Appeals must be made in writing and either hand-delivered to our office or USPS postmarked within the 45-day period. There are no exceptions. The filing of your appeal will not be accepted via email or fax. Please use the provided form to file a 2014 appeal.

For more information, please visit the Personal Property FAQs page or you may contact the Personal Property Division at 770.822.7220.

Important notice: Metered mail will not be accepted as proof of a timely filing of a tax return or appeal. Only the USPS cancellation stamp will be considered when determining if either has been filed on time.
