Are your Atlanta property taxes too high? How to file and appeal your tax assessment

Atlanta GA Real Estate Legal Tip:  Filing a Real Property Tax Return in 2010atlanta and decatur property taxes

Many properties have dropped in value since last year, but this does not mean that the property taxes will automatically go down.

All real property owners must file a Real Property Tax Return early in 2010 to lower their assessment from 2009 and to have the right to appeal their 2010 assessment.

This tax return is not the same as an appeal, and the value submitted by the owner does not set the final assessed value.  However, the tax assessor will review the owner's value and decide whether to accept it or dispute it.

The property owner will then have the right to appeal an official assessment that exceeds the owner's proposed value.   This is a separate process.

The procedures and deadlines vary by county (usually March 1st or April 1st - no extensions).  Most counties require the form to be mailed - no fax or email.

PLEASE NOTE:   This is in addition to filing for your Georgia homestead exemption.
