Don't pay more than your fair share in Property Tax

My Mission Statement 

Our goal is to reduce your property tax bill.  In order to do this, we appeal the county's opinion of the fair market value of your property.  The tax bill is comprised of the fair market value times the millage rate so if we can reduce the fair market value then we reduce your property tax bill.

Commercial and Residential Property Tax Appeals: Over 1,000 property tax appeals filed in over 30 different Georgia Counties

We handle the entire property tax appeal process for you.  Our scope of service includes:

  • Timely filing of appropriate appeal paperwork with County Tax Assessor's Office
  • Evaluation of your property tax bill to ensure you are receiving all available exemptions
  • Performing a market analysis of your property
  • Negotiating with County Appraisers
  • Representation at Board of Equalization Hearing
  • Continuing appeal to Superior Court *if necessary, additional fees apply

As a client, here's what to expect 


The property tax appeal process can linger for 6 to 18 months.

We will keep you updated on the status of your appeal and involve you in building our file on your property so we are negotiating from a position of knowledge when it is time for the Board of Equalization Hearing.

We prepare a market analysis of each property and we need specific details about your property to prepare for the appeal. 

The value of real estate is determined through a myriad of factors and each property is unique.

 Representation at the Board of Equalization Hearing  

The Board of Equalization Hearing is your chance to present an argument as to why the County should reduce the current year fair market value of your property.

A County Appraiser will present an argument on the County's behalf to justify their opinion of the fair market value.

The Board of Equalization is appointed by the Grand Jury and is comprised of 3 property owners in your County.  They listen to your argument and the County's argument then make a decision as to the fair market value of your property.

   Appeal to Superior Court

If you are not satisfied with the decision from the Board of Equalization, a property owner has the right to continue the appeal to Superior Court.

At this point, the Superior Court certifies the appeal and these cases can go to trial.

We have successfully represented owners at Superior Court including our largest victory ever when we saved a client over $100,000 on his property tax bill.
