Welcome to Property Tax Relief, LLC
You and all other property owners in the State of Georgia are well aware that both residential and commercial real estate values have substantially declined over the past two years. Therefore, all appraised values, which are the basis for the amount of property tax you pay each year, should have also declined - right? No, this is not the case. County tax assessors will continue to use the same appraised real property values that were used for the tax year 2010. This means for the 2012 tax year all owners’ properties will be taxed based on previously determined values - sometimes on values set many years ago when your real estate market was much more stable and on the way up in value. The tax assessors office will not come to you and say “Oh, by the way, your property value has recently dropped. We will be reducing your property tax burden equivalently to compensate for this economic downfall.”
Georgia law gives each property owner an opportunity to appeal a tax assessor’s appraised value of their property. This is a right established by state law, and to start the process an owner must file a time sensitive tax return with the county tax assessor’s office where the property is located. This causes the county to reassess the appraised value set for your property.
Our service, Property Tax Relief LLC, has over 40 years of real estate sales and appraisal experience in Gwinnett County and the Northeast Atlanta area. We live and work here every day - we know the market. The real estate market is down - you know your property value is down - now is the time to get your property tax bill down. Remember, if you don’t start the process, the tax assessor isn’t coming to you.
Property Tax Relief, LLC is a service for hire - we work only on a contingency basis to appeal your property’s appraised value. If you do not receive a reduction in your property’s appraised value - you owe us nothing. You have to start the process - the deadline to file is at the end of spring of 2012 - if you don’t file on time, you will lose your right to appeal for the 2012 tax year.
