Sample Property Tax Report for a Dekalb County, GA property

Georgia does not have a statewide property tax. The Department of Revenue is responsible for ensuring that property in Georgia is assessed uniformly and equally between and within the counties.

Market Value

DeKalb County Property Appraisal Department establishes the appraised value, also known as fair market value or market value, for all taxable real property in the county. Market value has been defined by The Supreme Court as the sale price of real estate as agreed upon between a willing buyer and willing seller, with neither being under duress to buy or sell.

Land value $19,400
Building value + $220,600
Market value = $240,000
Assessed Value

DeKalb County Property Appraisal Department is also responsible for determining the assessed value of the properties. Assessed value represents 40% of a property's market value.

Land assessed value $7,760
Bulding assessed value + $88,240
Assessed value = $96,000

Various property tax exemptions are available in DeKalb County which may lower the property's tax bill. These are deducted from the total property assessed value to give the property's taxable value.

Unfortunately no data regarding exact exemption values was provided to us, therefore the taxable value will be equal to the assessed value.

Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the taxable value with the applicable millage rates and represents what an owner NOT benefiting from tax exemptions or deductions would pay.
Actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement and financial assistance programs.
