Last night I opened the DeKalb County property tax assessment I received in the mail. I looked at the numbers and said, "Wow."
The assessed value of our condo in Decatur went up 6.4 percent. Last year it dropped.
I found out that wasn't so bad compared to other DeKalb property owners.
One woman I know said the assessed value on her home went up a whopping 73 percent.
She doesn't want to pay more property taxes. She's learning how to appeal.
Meanwhile, people in some neighborhoods are reporting most of their assessments dropped.
What's going on?
Were you surprised by your tax assessment? Will you file a formal appeal?
