APPEAL OF PROPERTY VALUE
The Board of Tax Assessors is required to issue a notice of assessment for taxable tangible real and personal property. Upon receipt of this notice, the property owner desiring to appeal the assessment may do so within 45 days of the date of the notice. The appeal may be based on taxability, value, uniformity, and/or the denial of an exemption. The written appeal is filed initially with the Board of Tax Assessors.
All parcels in appeal will be billed at 85% of the assessed value listed on your assessment notice. However, you may elect to be billed at 100% of the assessed value instead. This selection must be made at the time of your appeal and will not be changed after the appeal is submitted. For more information, you may contact the Tax Assessors' Office at (404) 612-6440, option #1.
