Although he's not in Brookhaven, local State Rep Mike Jacobs is putting on a clinic on how to appeal your taxes. I suggest attending. Looks like local State Senator Fran Millar is co-hosting (not sure if Fran mailed out something similar)
Reminder - Town Hall Meeting on Property Appeals - July 1
Please join me and Senator Fran Millar for a town hall meeting on Tuesday, July 1, at 7:00 p.m. at Chamblee First United Methodist Church, 4147 Chamblee Dunwoody Road.
Our community has been hit especially hard with property
assessment increases for the 2014 tax year. At this meeting, we will
explain in detail how to properly appeal your assessment. There is more
to the appeal process than simply sending a letter that you disagree
with your assessment on the basis of fair market value. However, if
armed with the right information, it is a process that homeowners can
handle on their own.
The deadline for DeKalb County property assessment appeals is July 14. Fulton County appeals are due July 21.
We also will discuss state and local issues.
