DeKalb County Tax Assessor Notices Are Out

DeKalb County Tax Assessor

The DeKalb County tax assessor has released the 2013 values and the assessment notices are dated May 28, 2013. With the Georgia mandated 45 day appeal period this makes the property tax appeal deadline July 12, 2013. The DeKalb County tax assessor has instituted a new online appeal option. If you visit their real estate data search page and input your name, address, or parcel ID number you will find your property description, and an option to file your appeal online. You will need the access code found on the bottom right of your property tax assessment notice in order to complete the online filing. 

We haven't heard any screaming yet due to large increases in taxable value as there were last year. Last year the neighborhood I live in was cut about 35% and there wasn't any complaining about it, except from those that were trying to sell their houses and thought the the DeKalb County tax assessor's values would have an impact on what potential purchasers would offer. I hate the think that there are people out there that actually think that the tax assessor is so correct that it sets an upper limit on value. 

The DeKalb County tax assessor staff is still working through the 2012 appeals even while 2013 appeals are now being filed. I think that most 2012 appeals have been cerified to the DeKalb County Board of Equalization at this time. The county appraisers will have their hands full with these 2012 hearings, so don't expect any quick response on your 2013 appeal.

If you are a home owner looking for information on how the DeKalb County tax assessor generates your value take a look at the cost approach to value. If you are commercial property owner looking for information on how the tax assessor generates your value you might be interested in both the cost approach to value and the income approach to value. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact Fair Assessments.
