Change to Tax Appeal Statute Take Effect July 1st

As of July 1, O.C.G.A. §48-5-311 has been amended to provide that taxpayers appealing from board of equalization or hearing officer decisions will no longer file a notice of appeal. An appeal is effected by filing a written petition for review with the county board of tax assessors. Filing fees are to be paid by check written out to the clerk of superior court and paid to the county board of tax assessors. The new statute also provides that the settlement conference which occurs prior to the certification of the record to superior court may be held in person, or by audio or video conference at the discretion of the taxing authority and with the consent of the taxpayer.
