Why pay higher property taxes when you can lower them?
Due to COVID-19 all outstanding 2019 appeals are on hold as the Boards of Equalization have suspended hearings until further notice. We can file 2020 appeals by mail or online and work the 2020 hearings when they are scheduled. Your tax bill is temporary and reduced from the full amount while your value is in appeal. It is based on either the 2019 value or 85% of the 2020 value, whichever is lower.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I appeal my tax assessment?
The mass appraisal process used by the tax assessors is unreliable and there is often room for adjustment. Additionally, in Georgia, settling your property tax appeal at a formal hearing caps your taxable value for three years. You may want to do this even if you think the assessor’s market value estimate is reasonable.
Will the county hold this against me?
No the tax assessment appeal process is written in the tax laws of the state and is a right that all taxpayers have. Many people have good reasons to appeal their value and the tax assessment staff understand this.
