Hello Neighbors,

According to the AJC, it looks as if Georgia's property tax system "folded" along with the real estate market last year. Metro Atlanta's home values decreased by thousands of dollars however tax appraisals did not.

It has been found that county appraisals are much higher than the property's worth, which could mean homeowners are being taxed on a value that no longer exists on their homes.

Stay tuned for more information on Georgia's property tax system.
