Gwinnett County, Georgia mailed the new “notice of current assessment” value for 2011 last Friday( 4/15/11). Home owners have 45 days from the mailing date to appeal the county’s assessed value. If you feel your home is over valued, be sure you file an appeal within the 45 day limit. The cost of an appeal to the homeowner is zero. Chances are the appeal will be successful and some tax money may be saved. If you lose the appeal, the tax assessor’s value remains in place.
How to appeal? I will cover that subject later.
