Annual Notice of Assessments

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 2015. 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.

Most residential and commercial property Annual Notice of Assessments were mailed April 8, 2016.
