Friendly Reminder if you received a property appraisal notice of assessment change

From Kathie Gannon and Jeff Rader

Even though the Tax Assessors office is recalculating property values based on the new law requiring among other things foreclosure sales and bank sales to be included in fair market value, your request to appeal the value needs to be submitted by May 18, 2009. The letter needs to be hand delivered or post marked by May 18, 2009. The address to mail the letter or hand deliver the letter is 120 West Trinity Place Decatur, GA 30030. If you choose to hand deliver the letter the office hours are 8:30 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday.
