Appeals ASSESSMENT APPEALS | Candler County Appeals Form NEW:  Assessment Notices for 2021 were mailed on June 4, 2021. An appeal may be filed by July 19, 2021. You may  print an appeal form from this site. The form may be mailed to the address on the form, or hand delivered to the  Assessors' Office at the 25 W. Daniel Street, Metter, GA. Candler County does not accept faxed or emailed appeals. A notice of assessment must be sent to the property owner each year. Upon receipt of this notice, the property owner  desiring to appeal must do so within 45 days of the date of the notice. The appeal is filed with the Board of Tax  Assessors, which reviews the appeal filed and informs the taxpayer of its decision. If the Board of Tax Assessors  makes no changes, the appeal is automatically forwarded to the County Board of Equalization. A hearing is scheduled,  conducted and the Board of Equalization renders its decision. If the taxpayer is still dissatisfied with the decision, an  appeal to Superior Court may be made. In lieu of an administrative appeal with the Board of Equalization, an arbitration method of appeal is also available to  the taxpayer. The Board of Tax Assessors can provide details regarding this procedure. The assessment appeal may be made on the basis of taxability of the property, the value placed upon the property, or  the uniformity of that value when compared to other similar properties in the county. The appeal must be filed within  the applicable time period and cannot be filed after that time. Additionally, the appeal should not be based on any  complaint regarding the amount of taxes levied on the property. Note: During the appeal period and for the remainder of 2021 our appraiser staff will be out inspecting property throughout the county verifying assessment information.
