2012 Dekalb County Board of Equalization

I had my first appeal of the season at Dekalb County, for tax year 2012, yesterday morning. The process seems more formal this year than in years past.  The appraiser representing the county was very young and the three comparables that he selected to use were all valued less per square foot than my subject property was.  So in addition to showing the seven sales I found, I pointed out the fact that the county selected three sales that were valued less than we were so clearly we were overvalued.  I saved my client $985.00, so he was happy.  The value that I obtained yesterday will remain the same for the next two years, so the total tax savings is $2,955 less my one time fee.  If anyone needs professional representation pertaining to his or her tax appeal, please contact me, Rob Vinson, at 404-218-7874 or emai me at info@taxappealatlanta.com or check out my website at www.taxappealatlanta.com.

    I went before the dekalb boe this week. I found the board politely listened to my presentation, but was not necessarily swayed by my data. In the end, the appraiser ended with a value he said he could live with and they wrote it down. I find out the results in a week. Thanks for the blog.

    • Whatever they wrote down is what the results will be. They are supposed to make their own decisions as to the values, but typically don’t. I hope the reduction you were able to get was a good one. If not, I’d be happy to review your situation for. tax year 13′ and let you know if I felt like it was worth me appealing it for you.
