Georgia Property Tax Updates

Covid-19 and Property Tax Appeals

Georgia Supreme Court Chief Justice Harold D. Melton issued three 30 day statewide judicial emergency orders due to the coronavirus, but the deadline for filing property tax appeals has not changed. Property owners must timely file appeals of their assessment notices or will have no right to contest their tax bills.  Assessment notices are used in April/May/June with a deadline of 45 days from the date of issuance. If an assessors' office changes the assessment in response to an appeal, a new assessment notice is sent to the taxpayer which also must be timely appealed, or the change is final. Taxpayers should watch carefully for a supplemental change notice because the filing deadline is much shorter than the initial filing deadline. Simple errors in the appeal process can be costly.
