(Forsyth County, GA) Forsyth County property owners will be receiving their 2023 Real Property Assessment Notices through the mail in the coming weeks.
The Forsyth County Board of Assessors sent the notices out on May 26. Notices can also be accessed online as of Tuesday, May 30. Each property assessment is only informational and is not a bill.
The tax dollar amount on the notice is an estimate based on last year’s millage rate and could change before the actual tax bill is mailed out later this year.
“As in recent years, the vast majority of most increases in tax bills can be seen in the school’s operation and bond estimated tax portion of the statement,” said Forsyth County Chief Appraiser Joel Benton. “The assessments that property owners will be receiving are, by Georgia law, based on fair market value. While fair market values have steadily increased over the past few years, Forsyth County property owners who are eligible and applied for a floating homestead exemption should see very little increase on the County’s portion of their tax bill.”
Property owners will have 45 days after the date of the notice to appeal their property value. Appeals on real estate can be filed until July 10.
The Forsyth County Board of Assessors is an independent board from the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners. Property assessments are made by the Board of Assessors in accordance with state law and the regulations required by the Georgia Department of Revenue.
Property assessments can be viewed online at the Board of Assessors webpage at forsythco.com. Residents can find their notices by searching for their name, parcel number or property address. Information will also include a property summary, owner information, assessed value, maps and a link to submit an appeal. Residents can also contact the Board of Assessors office at 770-781-2106.
