VIDEO: Property Assessments Mailed To Property Owners, Available To View And Appeal Online June 1

The Forsyth County Board of Assessors has mailed all Forsyth County property owners their state-required 2022 Real Property Assessment Notices, which can also be accessed online beginning June 1. Each property assessment notice is informational and is not a bill.

The annual assessment notices were mailed to County residents on May 27. 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. The last day to file an appeal on real estate will be July 11, 2022.

“State law requires that property assessments are based on fair market value, and Forsyth County is consistent with surrounding counties and national trends,” said Forsyth County Chief Appraiser Mary Kirkpatrick. “Even though fair market property values have increased 18 to 20% over the past year, residents with a floating homestead exemption will see very little if any increase on the county portion of their tax bill. Approximately 95% of the increase most homeowners will see on their tax bill will be a result of the school’s operation and bond estimated tax.”

The Board of Assessors is a separate and independent board from the Board of Commissioners and determines property assessments in accordance with Georgia law and the rules and regulations set forth by the Georgia Department of Revenue.

The dollar amount included on this informational notice is an estimate based on the previous year's millage rate and is subject to change before the actual tax bill goes out later in the year. For more information, please visit the Board of Assessors webpage at or contact the Board of Assessors by calling 770-781-2106.

Beginning June 1, property assessments can be viewed online, by visiting the Board of Assessors page on the County’s website, Visitors to the page can find their property assessment by searching the owner’s name, parcel number or address of the property. A property summary, owner information, assessed value, maps and a link to submit an appeal will be available for review.
