How Can I Lower My DeKalb County Property Tax?

Posted by Daniel Jones on Wed, Apr 01, 2015 @ 04 AM

With money getting tighter and tighter every year, homeowners throughout Georgia, including those in DeKalb County, are looking for ways to lower the amount they’re paying in property taxes. Many homeowners across the country simply accept the assessed value of their home as a given, and pay the property taxes that they’re billed each and every year. While this is good civic propriety, it is not good financial sense. In many cases a homeowner may be able to challenge the assessed value of his or her property, and reap the benefit of paying lower property taxes.

Georgia Taxpayers Return of Real Property

Posted by Daniel Jones on Thu, Feb 19, 2015 @ 02 PM

Today I want to talk about an often misunderstood form, the Georgia Taxpayer’s Return of Real Property. This time of year, prior to April 1, real estate “experts” start telling everyone (on radio, over email) that you need to return this form to tell the tax assessor what you think your property is worth. There is an urgency about these claims, because the deadline to file this form is indeed April 1. Some of them claim that you need to do this to appeal the tax assessor’s value.

Fulton County Tax Bill Errors

Posted by Daniel Jones on Thu, Oct 02, 2014 @ 10 AM

Attention Fulton County Taxpayer! The Fulton County Tax Commissioner's office has mailed incorrect tax bills. It's not that the taxable value is wrong, or the tax rate. It's the calculation of the taxable value by the tax rate that is incorrect on many tax bills. Of course, the mistake tends to increase the amount of property tax that is due.

Fulton County Tax Assessors 2014

Posted by Daniel Jones on Thu, Jun 05, 2014 @ 06 PM

The Fulton County Board of Tax Assessors have, apparently, sent their 2014 property tax assessment notices. I say apparently because we had been hearing that the notices would be dated June 6, and mailed on June 6. However, a client in Marietta has received a 2014 tax assessment notice from the Fulton County Assessors today. Which means the notice was probably mailed yesterday, the 4th. The notice however, is dated TOMORROW June 6.
