Tax assessment notices will be arriving in the next few days.
The Forsyth County Tax Assessor’s Office is sending the notices out today to alert owners to the value of their property.
The notices also include an estimate of what taxes could be this year, based on last year’s millage rate.
Mary Kirkpatrick, the county’s chief tax appraiser, has cautioned recipients not to mistake a notice for a bill. No payment is required until an actual bill is sent later this year.
Previously, notices were sent only to owners whose property values had changed.
However, a law passed last year requires every property owner to receive an annual status of their home’s value.
The last day to file an assessment appeal is May 31, or 45 days after the notices are sent.
About 77,535 notices are being mailed and nearly 66,000 of those will show a drop in assessed value.
Kirkpatrick has said her office is open to the community for questions. Contact: (770) 781-2106 or visit www.forsythco.com.
