APPEALING YOUR PROPERTY VALUE Georgia Law requires the Board of Assessors to mail assessment notices to all property owners annually. When you receive your assessment notice, the first thing you should ask yourself is, “what is the fair market value of my property?” Fair Market Value is the price that a willing buyer would pay and a willing seller would accept for a property in an open market sale. If your appraised value is more than you reasonably could expect to sell your property for, then you should consider filing an appeal. If you wish to appeal, you must do so before the appeal deadline date printed on your notice.   METHODS TO APPEAL 1. ONLINE FILING Filing online allows our office to receive and process your appeal more quickly.  Additionally, it alleviates your appeal being lost when using standard mail.  When filing online, all required data must be entered for the appeal to be accepted.  After submitting your appeal, you will receive a confirmation number acknowledging that the appeal was received.  If you wish to file your appeal online, click on the link below.  NOTICE:  ONLINE FILING IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE.  IF YOU HAVE RECEIVED AN ASSESSMENT NOTICE AND THE 45-DAY APPEAL TIME HAS NOT EXPIRED, YOU MAY FILE AN APPEAL MANUALLY.  A LINK TO THE APPEAL FORM IS LOCATED BELOW. 2. MANUAL FILING If you wish to file you appeal manually, click the link below, complete the appeal form and mail or hand-deliver it to our office at 141 Pryor Street, SW, Suite 2052, Atlanta, Georgia 30303.  While it is not required, we highly suggest you mail the appeal using certified or priority mail for proof of delivery.  Appeals must be postmarked on or before the last day to file shown on the notice of assessment.  Appeals received or postmarked after the last day to a file will not be accepted.  The Board of Assessors cannot be held responsible for lost mail.  Note that this form will not be accepted via email or fax. APPEAL FORM   APPEAL RESOLUTION CENTER If you filed an appeal electronically, you may click on the link below to access the Appeal Resolution Center after the 45-day appeal period has expired.  Property owners will receive an invitation email with instructions on how to set up an account to access the Appeal Resolution Center. Once the account has been activated, the property owner can then check the status of their appeal(s), communicate with the appraisal staff and submit additional documentation to assist in resolution of the appeal. Due to the volume of appeals, the resolution may take some time.  Therefore, please be patient in receiving a response to questions you may ask regarding your appeal or supporting documentation you have submitted.  While your appeal is being resolved, it is imperative that you pay the temporary tax bill to avoid penalties and fees.  Once the appeal is resolved, the Tax Commissioner's office will recalculate the bill based on the final value.  Please refer billing questions to the Tax Commissioner's office at 404-613-6100, or you may view your tax bill on the Tax Commissioner's website at www.fultoncountytaxes.org.  If you have questions regarding the Appeal Resolution Center, contact our office at 404-612-6440.
