On August 17, 2020, the Department of Revenue issued a bulletin to provide information and guidance to all County Tax Commissioners and Boards of Assessors regarding the tolling of property tax appeal deadlines by the Georgia Supreme Court emergency orders issued in light of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The Order reimposed the deadlines for property tax appeals for assessment notices issued between March 14, 2020 and July 13, 2020. Therefore, the appeal period for Cobb County property owners will expire on August 27, 2020.
Appeals can only be filed in response to an Assessment Notice. If you received an Assessment Notice, you have until August 27, 2020 to file an appeal. A standard appeal form is available on this website or you may simply write a letter telling us that you are appealing, indicate your appeal route choice, and if possible, explain why you disagree with our value. Your letter must include the street address of your property and the Parcel ID Number. We would also like an email address and a daytime phone number to contact you. We still cannot accept fax appeals. Please be sure to hand deliver or mail your appeal POSTMARKED BY THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE by the last day of the appeal period.
