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 not what 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.  APPEAL PROCESS SUMMARY METHODS TO APPEAL The most efficient method to appeal is online! 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 completed and accepted.  After submitting your appeal, you will receive a confirmation email acknowledging that the appeal was received.  Once your appeal has been filed electronically, you will be able to manage your appeal online by checking the status, communicating with the appraisal staff, and providing additional information and documents as necessary. If you wish to file your appeal Online, click on the link below.  ONLINE APPEAL 2. MANUAL FILING If you wish to file your appeal manually, click the link below, complete and print 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: This form will not be accepted via email.  Also, if you file manually, you will not be able to access your appeal through the Appeal Resolution Center. APPEAL FORM   APPEAL RESOLUTION CENTER If you filed an appeal electronically, you may click on the link below to access the Appeal Resolution Center to check the status of your appeal(s), communicate with the appraisal staff and submit additional documentation to assist in resolution of the appeal. If you did not file your appeal electronically, you will not be able to access your appeal through the Appeal Resolution Center.  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, and press option #1.
