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 of 2014. There may be some exception where a notice was issued later.  Please check your Assessment Notice date if you think you may still have appeal rights.

Please note: Property owner’s 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 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.

Annual Notice of Assessment

Georgia law requires that the County Board of Tax Assessors provide an Annual Notice of Assessment to the owner of taxable property. An Annual Notice of Assessment is not a tax bill. The notice informs the property owner of the current fair market value as calculated by the Board of Tax Assessors and the appraisal staff, as well as provides the property owner the assessed value (40 percent of the fair market value) of their property (O.C.G.A. 48-5-7). The annual property tax bill will be based on the assessed value (40 percent of the fair market value) unless subsequently adjusted following an appeal. The notice also includes estimated taxes that are based on the previous year's millage rate and the current year's value. The actual tax bill, which is usually issued in August, will be calculated on the millage rates set by the Board of Commissioners and the Board of Education for 2014. Those rates are usually decided between June and July after the Notice of Assessment is issued. Because this is only an estimate, your actual tax bill may be more or less than this estimate. The estimate may not include all eligible exemptions, fees, i.e.: stormwater, solid waste or streetlights, which may appear on your tax bill.
