DOUGLAS COUNTY ANNUAL ASSESSMENT NOTICES TO BE MAILED IN JULY


Douglasville, GA - The Douglas County Board of Assessors will mail Annual Assessment Notices on Wednesday, July 1, 2020.

The notice is provided to all owners of taxable real estate and taxable personal property such as boats and business equipment/furniture. The Board of Assessors has proposed 100% Fair Market Value and 40% Assessed Value for their property as of January 1, 2020. The values will be used by the Board of Commissioners for county government, the Board of Education for the county school system and the city council for the county cities to set millage rates and mail out property tax bills through the Tax Commissioner's Office. Also, the notice gives an estimated tax bill, which helps property owners determine the approximate tax amount they may pay based on the proposed values.

Property owners who wish to appeal the notice must submit their appeal in writing by mail postmarked no later than the deadline of August 17, 2020. Appeals by fax or email are not acceptable. Appeals may be dropped off 7 days a week, 24 hours a day during appeal time by placing them in the Tax Commissioner's drop box located in the parking lot to the left of the Tax Commissioner's Office, 6200 Fairburn Road.

The Board of Assessors/Appraisal Department Office, also located at 6200 Fairburn Road, is closed to the public due to COVID-19. Please check the county's website for status update at celebratedouglascounty.com. Call the Appraisal Department at 770-920-7228 to discuss your appeal with an appraiser.
