Cherokee County Tax Assessor’s Office releases convenient tool for citizens

Posted By: Tax Assessor's Office on Apr-29-2021 @ 03:05 pm

CANTON, GA (April 28, 2021) – The Cherokee County Tax Assessor’s office has released a convenient tool for citizens ahead of distributing assessment notices. 

The office launched an online program called Appeals developed by Spatialist, which allows residents to file assessment appeals completely online. The program also includes the “Comper” tool that gives property owners easy access to comparable sales in neighborhoods. The Comper tool is currently used on the Tax Assessor’s Office property search tool on its website.

In previous years, residents who disagreed with their assessed values had to fill out and print a form, provide documentation and either mail or hand-deliver the documents to the Tax Assessor’s Office. The new process for initial appeals is convenient and provides residents with an additional option.

 “When a taxpayer wishes to file an appeal, the system will navigate them through the Comper tool on the way to filing the appeal so they may see the most recent comparable properties that have sold in their area,” said Cherokee County Chief Appraiser Steve Swindell.

The Board of Tax Assessors is expected to sign off on the notices at its May 13 meeting with mailings to begin Monday, May 17. The office anticipates mailing more than 113,000 notices, which include the assessed value assigned to a property used to measure applicable taxes, as well as qualified exemptions, such as homestead and senior tax exemptions. Homeowners who do not agree with the value placed on their property will have a 45-day window to appeal the amount, which will end on July 1.

Swindell said property owners should expect to see an average of a 7-8 percent increase in their assessment for an existing home based on the average residential property value of $325,000.

Homeowners wishing to file an appeal can find instructions on their assessment notice as well as a link to the appeal tool at appeals.spatialest.com/ga-cherokee.

“The appeals tool is only good for filing the initial appeal,” said Swindell. “If a change is made and an adjusted Notice of Assessment is sent, the taxpayer would be required to mail us their intent to continue their appeal within 30 days of the date of the notice.”
