Last Chance to Appeal DeKalb Property Taxes

You have until Friday, July 13.

A lot of people were unhappy when they go their . Some folks said the value of their house more than doubled.

If you want to appeal your assessment, you don't have much time. Friday, July 13, is the deadline to file the appeal.

Jessica Durden Crocker, of Tucker's Georgian Home Realty, has some advice for Patch readers: "First of all, it must be postmarked with tomorrow's date (July 13) or you must hand deliver it in downtown Decatur. Secondly, their site isn't working properly "and they don't know why" (as I was told yesterday) so some people can submit their appeal form online, but, most cannot! So you need to look into that today or tomorrow so you can print the form and fill it out. It's an easy, quick form to complete."

You can find more information about appealing at numerous places on the internet, such as this Patch blog by Viola Davis, or you can go to the official DeKalb County website.
