People who appealed this year’s property tax assessment – and there are likely a fair number of people who did, given the 20 percent jump in property values over last year – might be wondering about the next steps.

The city of Decatur is hosting an information session for people who have appealed their tax bills. The workshop will be held on Thursday, Sept. 17, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Decatur Recreation Center, located at 231 Sycamore Street.

“A representative from the DeKalb County Property Appraisal Department will outline the assessment appeal process and will provide information regarding what will happen next,” the announcement from the city says.

The deadline to file an appeal has passed.

“If you have already appealed, this is the opportunity to find out about the rest of the process,” the announcement from the city says. “You will also learn how to plan for future assessments.”

The event is part of the Decatur Lifelong Community Advisory Board’s Third Thursday series.

Anyone who has additional questions should send an email to leeann.harvey@decaturga.com or call 678-553-6548.
