Notice: 2017 Property Tax Assessments
In May 2017, Fulton County property owners received their 2017 Property Assessment Notices. In the weeks that followed, many issues with increases in property values came to light related to the notices. On June 21, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners voted to correct the 2017 tax digest. Values of all residential properties in Fulton County will be reset at 2016 values for 2017, with the following exceptions:
- New construction, new parcels, and property with changes in acreage, living area or renovation will maintain their 2017 values.
- Properties with any change in exemption, either as requested by the property owner before June 21 or removed by the Tax Assessors' Office in error, will be corrected with the appropriate exemption for 2017.
- Properties that were subject to litigation that changed ownership, value of the land, or improvements within a tax parcel as a result of the appeal with maintain 2017 values.
Values of all commercial properties in Fulton County will remain at the 2017 assessed levels, due to undergoing an extensive review process in 2015 and 2016.
What happens next?
All property owners will receive a new 2017 Property Assessment Notice in August.
If you have already submitted an appeal, it will be voided. You will receive official notice from the Board of Assessors.
A new 45-day appeal window will begin with the date of the new notices.
Updated 2017 assessment information will also be posted at www.qpublic.net/ga/fulton.
