Property Taxes

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.

    Everything is going up,everything but OUR PAYCHECKS! You hear from every buisness when you complain they say ,"gas has went up to run the trucks,we have to pass on the cost of things to our customers." No one seems to care if we have the money to pay for their extra costs . When does it stop! The grocery,cable,phone,internet,gas,and now land taxes again,when is going to stop! Yes this is a free country to live in --- as long as you pay outrageous prices,and land taxes and government taxes you can come and go as you please.You have to work the first four and half months of every year to pay your taxes before you start earning money for yourself.Yes,this a free country......
