If you believe that you are paying too much in property tax for your home due to decreasing home prices, you may be able to lower your taxes. Especially in neighborhoods where foreclosures have had an effect on resales, this is one area Home Owners may be able to get some relief.
Home Owners who believe their property's worth is below it's appraised value for taxes can possibly lower their taxes by filing a residential property tax return. Home Owners can contact the Dekalb County Tax Appraisal Department at 404-371-0841 to request a form. Forms will also be available to pick up at:
Dekalb County Tax Commissioner
120 West Trinity Place
Decatur, GA 30030
Dekalb County will not be putting their forms on-line. If you need a form call after January 2 to request one. Real Estate Property Tax Returns are received in Dekalb County's office from January 1st to March 1st. The property tax returns then go through the same course an appeal would, getting reviewed by staff and eventually the county Board of Assessors.
For other counties, go to your county's or county tax assessor's Web site, where forms can be downloaded.
