Property Tax assessments are beginning to roll out, which means the time to appeal your property taxes is forthcoming should you decide to do so. Our resident property tax attorney, Hap Richardson of HLR Law, has a few tips to get you started:
- Find the 2022 Notice of Assessment – it is either in your mailbox or online, lots of good information on this form.
- Confirm your homestead exemption – Discount on property taxes for your primary residence.
- Evaluate your 2022 tax liability – 84% of properties in Gwinnett County increased, how big is your increase?
