ATLANTA (AP) -- A wide-ranging overhaul of property taxes in Georgia is headed to Governor Sonny Perdue.
The measure would require that homes be assessed every year and extends the appeal process from 30 to 45 days.
It also requires that all comparable sales -- including foreclosures -- must be applied when officials set an assessed value.
The measure passed the House Thursday by a 157-to-one vote and
has already been adopted by the Senate.
Supporters say it's designed to create uniformity in the way homes are taxed and to give homeowners access to more information.
