Why DeKalb County Property Tax Appeal Services Matter More Than You Realize

Posted by Daniel Jones on Aug 17, 2021 5:30:00 PM

Every year in DeKalb County, you'll receive an Assessment Notice in the mail. It will come from the Property Appraisal Department, and it will outline what they believe to be the current fair market value of your home - a number that will be used to dictate how much you'll pay in property taxes moving forward.

Obviously, this process is imperfect as nobody is actually coming inside your home to make a judgement. In fact, they may not have physically visited your home at all - it may be based on the prices of similar homes in the area, among other factors.

But if you disagree with the value on that notice, you should absolutely file an appeal to reduce your property taxes to something more appropriate. Obviously, you can do this your own - but DeKalb County property tax appeal services are also a viable option.
