If you’re in GA, and want to appeal your property tax assessment for 2012, you’re in luck!!!
This year for tax year 2011, every assessor’s office, in each of the 159 counties, will have to “Automatically” issue an assessment notice to every parcel owner via mail. There will be a six-week window in which folks may file an appeal. On these notices the assessor’s office will have to show what the proposed fair market value is along with an estimate of the property tax amount due based on that assessment. This is new as for all of the years past, a property owner would have to file a return; which would make the assessors tell the property owner what they were going to be taxed at, unless there was a county wide reappraisal,and they would have to mail out the new assessment notices. If the property owner missed a return deadline or an appeal deadline, too bad, they couldn’t appeal their value and they were stuck with it until the following year. If anyone is interested in having a professional appeal their assessment, please contact me for more information. I have 17 years experience appealing assessments in metro Atlanta, including Fulton, Dekalb, Cobb, Gwinnett, Henry, Clayton, Rockdale and most of the other metro Atlanta Counties. I have also worked throughout the rest of the state of GA, as well as in AL, TN, NC, VA, MD, FL, KY, AR and MS. Throughout those 17 years, i have saved my clients millions of valuable tax dollars that would have been lost for good. In fact, today at Fulton County, GA, I saved one client over $20,000 on three of his appeals that i did for him. Needless to say, he was ecstatic. Stay tuned for more!
