Property Field Reviews
In accordance with O.C.G.A. 48-5-264.1, the appraisal staff will routinely field check properties to verify sales, check the status of building permits and review properties that have been appealed. Appraisers will also periodically canvas Fulton County to reconcile our records with businesses that are in operation, as well as those which have closed.
Additional Time To Review Appeals
The Fulton County Board of Assessors reserves the right, when circumstances warrant, to take an additional 180 days, pursuant to O.C.G.A. 48-5-311 (e)(3)(B), to review the appeal of assessments of property value or exemption denials. In such case, the Board of Assessors will notify each taxpayer of its decision to utilize the additional time period to issue a determination.
