A meeting Thursday night will provide more information on the state-required annual assessment notices that Forsyth County property owners will be receiving next month.
The session is set for 6 p.m. at the Forsyth County Administration Building in downtown Cumming.
“It is important for Forsyth County property owners to realize the assessment notice is not a bill,” said Mary Kirkpatrick, chief appraiser.
“The dollar amount included on this informational notice is purely an estimate, and will be based on the previous year’s millage rate.”
The county's board of tax assessors is scheduled to send out the notices April 15.
Property owners should note that the estimate is based on the previous year’s millage rate, which is subject to change before the actual tax bill goes out later in the year.
In past years, only residents whose property was reassessed received assessment notices.
A recent change in state law, however, requires notices be sent annually to all owners of real property, regardless of whether their property was reassessed.
