- ONLINE FILING
The online option is the preferred method of filing. It allows our office to receive and process your appeal efficiently. You may file an online appeal using our online portal, which allows you to uploaded supporting documentation and/or photographs. 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.

2. MANUAL FILING
While we encourage online filing, if you wish to file an appeal manually, click the link below 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.
- 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.
Note: Appeals will not be accepted via email or fax. Also, those that choose to file manually will not be able to access their appeal through the online portal.

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.
