Property Appeals

If you disagree with the Current Year Value on your assessment notice, you may file an appeal using one of the methods below. If you wish to appeal, you must do so before the appeal deadline date printed on your notice.  Due to the volume of appeals, the resolution may take some time. Therefore, please be patient while our staff works diligently to resolve appeals.

Note that if you wish to file an appeal of your property value as well as an appeal of denial of homestead exemption, you must file two separate appeals.

If your appeal has not been resolved when tax bills are mailed, you must pay the  temporary bill to avoid penalties and fees. Once your appeal is resolved, the tax bill will be recalculated based on the final value.  Billing questions can be answered by contacting the Fulton County Tax Commissioner’s office at 404-613-6100.

Filing online allows our office to receive and process your appeal more quickly.   Additionally, it alleviates your appeal being lost or undelivered when using standard mail.

You may file an online appeal using our SmartFile system.  With SmartFile you can begin filing an appeal and save the transaction until you have completed answering all questions and uploaded supporting documentation and/or photographs.  Do not click the submit button to file the appeal until you are satisfied with all of the information you have entered and attached all documents or photos.  Once you submit the appeal you will not be able to make any modifications or add additional documentation.  After filing the appeal, you will receive a confirmation email with your filing ID number.  The number will also appear on your screen once the appeal is submitted.  If you do not see this number, then your appeal has not been properly submitted.


Due to high system activity and other unforeseen issues, online services may be temporarily available at times.  We encourage you to file appeals early so that if there are system issues, you still have time to file via mail or  in person.  The 45-day appeal period is a statutory regulation and we do not have the authority to grant extensions of the deadlines. 

If you have questions regarding online services, contact our office at 404-612-6440.

Online Services


While we encourage online filing, if you wish to file an appeal manually, click the link a the bottom of this page to access an appeal form.  Mail or hand-deliver the completed form to our main office at 235 Peachtree Street, NE, Suite 1200, Atlanta, Georgia 30303.  The form can also be hand-delivered to one of our satellite offices.  If you elect to write an appeal letter instead of using the form, please include the following information in your letter:

  • Parcel Identification Number (Property ID number)
  • Property Address
  • Daytime telephone number
  • Specify your appeal method (Board of Equalization, Arbitration or Hearing Officer) Note: Additional fees apply  when choosing Arbitration and Hearing Officer
  • State your estimate of the value of your property as of January 1st for the year that you are appealing.
  • Specify whether you want to be billed at 85% or 100% of the assessed value while your appeal is being resolved (If you do not specify an appeal method or billing percentage, your appeal will be selected for Board of Equalization and 85% billing.  Pursuant to Georgia law, 85% billing will apply the lower of the current year or prior year assessed value).
  • Attach any supporting documentation or photographs to support your reason for filing the appeal

While it is not required, we highly suggest you mail the appeal using certified mail for proof of delivery.  Appeals must be postmarked on or before the last date to file shown on the notice of assessment.  Appeals received or postmarked after the last day to a file will not be accepted. To ensure timely delivery, envelopes must be stamped by a U. S. Mail postage meter and not a third party meter.  The Board of Assessors cannot be held responsible for undelivered mail.


Note: Appeals will not be accepted via email or fax.  Also, if you file manually, you will not be able to access your appeal through the SmartFile system.
