Fulton County residents have until July 10 to appeal assessments

June 19, 2017

TaxProperty owners in Johns Creek and across Fulton County, who saw significant valuation increases, have the ability to file an appeal regarding the recent property tax assessment of their home.

The Johns Creek City Council, along with other municipalities and the Fulton County Commission, requested that the Tax Assessor of Fulton County rescind the current assessment notices and perform another review.  However, the Fulton County Board of Assessors decided not to rescind the 2017 tax digest and rollback assessment values to 2016 levels as requested.
Property owners who disagree with the Current Year Value on their assessment notice have a 45-day appeal window.  Residents should note that the appeals deadline is Monday, July 10, updated from the July 3 date printed on the notices. Appeals may be submitted online, in person, or by mail.
For more information call 404-612-6440 or go online to www.fultonassessor.org.
According to the Fulton County government, the County offers numerous property tax relief measures. Significantly, owner-occupied residential properties with a homestead exemption in place will benefit from the Consumer Price Index (CPI) Homestead Freeze.  This offsets assessment increases to the CPI or 3%, whichever is less. Fulton County also has a basic homestead exemption of $30,000, which is among the highest in the metro area.
