Assessment Notices

Appeal Process

Property owners will have the opportunity to appeal their property value as shown in the assessment notice for 45 days after the date of the notice. We offer an online filing option which will also give you the opportunity to look at other comparable properties, and gives you the ability to file an appeal without the necessity of coming into the Tax Assessors Office. Please click here and you will be taken to a screen to search your property by name, address or parcel number. Once you have located your property, you will see the Online Appeal option.

If the Online Appeal is not working, you can download the PT-311A Appeal of Assessment Form and email it to Please click here to be taken to the Forms page. The PT-311A is located under "Real Property" towards the bottom of the page.

You can also file an appeal in person at The Board of Assessors Office located at 110 East Main Street, Suite 260, Cumming, GA 30040.

The appeal process contains three different options for property owners. One option is the Board of Equalization, which is comprised of three citizens appointed by the Grand Jury to hear property tax appeals. There is no charge for this option of the appeal process.

Other appeal options contain fees. In one such option, a property owner may choose to move forward with the process of arbitration without an appeal to Superior Court. Another appeal option would involve an owner of a Non-Homestead property valued at more than $500,000 deciding to appeal to a hearing officer with appeal rights to Superior Court.

Property owners wishing to appeal their property value must submit the appeal in writing and should indicate which appeal process they elect to utilize.
