Georgia state law, under Senate Bill 346 (effective January 1, 2011), requires annual assessment notices be sent to every property owner.
No. However, if you believe your property valuation is incorrect, you have the right to file an appeal.
SB 346 requires using the prior year mill rates. The current year tax bill amount is unknown as of the mailing of this Assessment Notice. Local levying authorities have not finalized budgets or established current year mill rates.

The millage, or tax rate, is the rate used to calculate taxes on property. Prior year rates are listed at the bottom of your Assessment Notice in the column labeled ‘Millage’. Current year rates are unknown at the time assessment notices are mailed; levying authorities establish millage rates prior to mailing of tax bills.
Typically, tax bills are mailed in the fall of each year; in August or September.
Yes. All prior years and current year approved exemptions are included in the estimated tax amount.
