The Board of Assessors offices have resumed normal operations. You are able to make homestead exemption filings as well as business, aircraft and marine personal property returns using our Online Filing Portal.
Phone services have been re-established with limited coverage; however, taxpayers may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
It is the goal of the Fulton County Board of Assessors to notify the public of changes in property tax law. During the 2023 legislative season, Georgia lawmakers passed HB 270 which makes changes to property tax law that may affect taxpayers in Fulton County.
Onsite Paperless Filing
Onsite paperless filing is now available for your convenience at all our homestead locations. Taxpayers simply provide the information necessary to qualify for an exemption without the need to fill out a paper application.
As a courtesy, required documentation necessary for filing is immediately scanned into our system and returned to the taxpayer. For a Basic Exemption, this includes a valid Georgia Driver’s License or Georgia Identification card as well as the registration for vehicles owned by and registered in the name of the property owner and spouse.
For those filing for senior and other special exemptions, additional documentation may be required. This includes such items as State and Federal Tax returns or, if you do not file income tax, a Social Security Award letter. These items are scanned in and immediately returned also.
Before leaving, you will review a printed receipt with all your pertinent information included and sign verifying that your information is correct. Staff will scan the receipt into our system and return the signed receipt to you for your records. The signed receipt includes the oath that all information provided by the taxpayer is correct.
We are pleased to provide an Enhanced Property Search tool on our website!
The search tool is easier to navigate and will improve the user experience. Also available is a comparable search module which allows selection of various property characteristics to compare similar types of properties. Once the selection criteria are entered, a report is generated that includes a data summary of each property and a map displaying the parcels.
