I now have a YouTube channel called “Real Estate Command”. In my YouTube channel, I occasionally make videos to teach and inform people how the Georgia Property Tax Appeals work. You may want to check it out if you need some additional tips and help getting through your property tax appeal especially now after the […]
When I began filing my own property tax appeals over a decade ago, I never knew one of the benefits of filing property tax appeals in Georgia is that property owners are able to get a 3-year property tax freeze. How this is allowed is buried in the Georgia statutes. Specifically, OCGA § 48-5-299(c). § […]
Fulton County produced a short (1-minute) video that simply explains the Board of Equalization and its process. It is worth watching. However, what is peculiar about this video is that it appears to abruptly cut off at the end.

The Dekalb County Board of Assessors produced a short (3.5 minutes) informational video that explains what county appraisers do, their job at the tax assessors office, and how it relates to you, the property owner. Although the video was produced by Dekalb County, the basic information of what county appraisers do in Georgia is essentially […]
I have created a Georgia Tax Appeal Process Infographic to help property owners understand the “big picture” the entire process. I have used the Board of Equalization (BOE) path in this example. The path and procedure is different with the Hearing Officer and Arbitration paths. But they all end with the Superior Court being the […]
