Sample Annual Notice of Assessment

Georgia law dictates the contents of the annual notice of assessment mailed to property owners each year. At the bottom of this page is a sample notice of assessment, with colored boxes to highlight important information for property owners:

RED - last date to file a written appeal.

GREEN - status of Homestead exemption; exemption amounts are reflected in the estimated tax bill at the bottom of the notice.

BLUE - 100% Fair Market Value — this value can be appealed.

YELLOW - the estimated tax bill on the assessment notice reflects the previous year’s millage rates, or tax rates. Millage rates are set each year by the levying authorities (may include the county commissioners, city council, and school district)
