Notices of Annual Assessment were placed in the mail on June 12, 2024. Per Georgia Law, you have until July 29, 2024 to file an appeal of your current valuation. Please click the following link to print an appeal form: PT-311A Appeal of Assessment Form. Although the form being linked here is not required to be used by the taxpayer, as an appeal can be filed made in the form of any typed or handwritten letter, the use of this form is strongly encouraged as it requests all required elements of a lawful appeal.

Please note that we encourage you to file an appeal in cases where you feel our valuation has exceeded the property's true Fair Market Value. We further encourage you to research the market using the tools on our website, as well as other tools found on the Internet to determine your estimate of your property's value, prior to filing your appeal. It will be very helpful to your case if you state a factual basis for your opinion and provide to the Assessors any facts you feel support your basis. However, filing an appeal based on emotion because you are unhappy that your property has been increased or because of how you believe the reassessment will affect your tax burden, is very unlikely to result in a successful appeal outcome. Also note, while you have the right to place any value you wish in the Owner's Value Assertion box (which is required on the form linked above), simply placing last year's value in that box gives the appearance of an appeal based on emotion rather than one that that was well-researched when prepared.

Lastly should you file an appeal, please understand that a staff appraiser will perform a site visit to the appealed property at some time in the coming months. Placing a good contact number and email address on the form (or in your own prepared letter) will help the appraisal staff contact you to ascertain any additional information required, and will also help our clerical staff contact you to arrange a meeting with the Board of Tax Assessors to discuss your appeal. This contact information may also be used by the Appraisal Staff to facilitate a site visit. However, we cannot guarantee you that site visits will be arraigned in advance.

If you have any questions or require any assistance, please call our office at (706) 283-2008.
