Do you own property in Gwinnett County, Georgia? If so, you may have been unhappy with your latest property assessment. When property owners receive unfavorable tax assessments, their knee-jerk reaction is to initiate a property tax appeal. After all, it’s every property owner’s legal right to file an appeal. Besides, if things don’t go their way, the worst thing that can happen is that they’ll have wasted some time and energy, right? Wrong.
If you decide to take on the overwhelming action of filing an appeal, you’d better be willing to put in a lot of time and do your homework. If you file an appeal just to “see what happens,” you’re making a huge mistake. If you don’t know what you’re doing, the Gwinnett County Assessor could not only decide that your property taxes aren’t too high, but could decide that your property taxes aren’t high enough!
There’s a fine line between wanting to fight for what’s right and risking a penalty for your efforts. If you think that the Gwinnett County Assessor assessed you too much but aren’t 100% certain, what should you do?
