I'm curious to know if anyone has had their home appraised recently in Paulding county. How much have home values dropped in 2 years ? Our taxes keep going up and our houses aren't worth what they used to be. dry.gif

Channel 2 said with fallen home values the TAXES will still be higher. Also said all Tax offices are getting ready for all the Calls they are expecting to come in. Hope they have some good answers. Due to the states short fall on Budget.

When the county revenue increase by 3% we may get this off again. (I'm guess Homestead exemption) even though you filed you will still have this increase.

Folks can grumble and cuss about the democrats, but when Slick Willie was in the white house and the Democrats ran the State of Georgia, we didn't seem to be in the mess we're in now. All this economic mess started under the leadership of the GOP and now folks like Purdue, & Ricahardson are going to raise our taxes to fill the gap? angry.gif

Right now a $300 increase in taxes is a lot of money to a lot of families. angry.gif

I though we had a election in Paulding County where we threw out the old County Commissioner that rased properity taxes too much, for a new County Commissioner that would not rase our property taxes? Or was I dreaming.

Not that a tax increase is ever good, but in real terms it's $25/month.

I think the legislature passed something that changed the yearly appraisal to every 2 or 3 years? not sure of the time span. What bothers me is that now that values are dropping we may not see a reduction for a LONGER period of time. I guess the property owner should be prepared to appeal!! That might bring it down some.

Ours too ! I got a letter from my mortgage company, they want an additional 350.00 for my escrow account by June 1st to cover "future" increases in my tax bill and homeowners insurance. My mortgage keeps going up and my taxes keep going up but my home value is in the toilet. It sucks. mad.gif

Published: May 7, 2009
Property assessments in Georgia cannot rise until 2011 under a bill signed into law on Wednesday by Governor Sonny Perdue. Supporters say the new law will prevent local governments from hiking assessments during an economic downturn rhat has driven many property values down. Count on WJBF News Channel 6ís Renita Crawford for the story.

The law prevents local governments from hiking assessments during an economic downturn that has driven many property values down. But critics say without the ability to raise revenue from rising home assessments, some counties would hike their millage rates instead.

Oh, but Mr Richardson and company will swear on a stack of their GOP Bibles they did not raise your property taxes, and they would be correct.

What they did was decided not to renew a tax credit you got through the State, so every property owner would see an increase in what they have to pay by $200 to $300.

Now, add to that the green space tax the voters approved 2 years ago.

And the School Bonds the voters turned down on the first vote and approved on the 2nd vote [all of you who approved this one know who you are].

And a new bond payment for the courthouse/administration complex which will include catching up with the past year because old King Jerry and company swept it under the carpet instead of putting it on the tax bill last year during a heated local election. But it is still a $65million complex which WE have to pay for even though we had no vote on it.

On top of all of this, I am guessing the BOC will have to raise the millage rate this year to cover the decreases in overall revenue and the roll back in property values.

Get prepared for a sticker shock come September 1.

Ours actually, believe or not, came down last year, not by much, but some. Of course, the previous year they increased by at least 60%. I still think I'll net even, relatively speaking, but I agree, our increase was based on an upswing in property values, and then I think they came to their partial senses when they adjusted ours down a bit. Still, compared to what we were paying a couple of years ago, prior to the increase and then decrease, we're still paying a pretty penny for a house that I'm sure has devalued over the years do to the economy.

We're both now out of work, had good jobs, really good jobs in the past, and now.......................................................Even if we find something out of state, we can't sell our house in this economy, much less just find a menial job. (Nothing wrong with menial jobs by any means, we're looking for anything we can find.)

Re house - I'm just glad we have some land to offer to anyone that's interested, although right now we're not to the point of selling.

$25 a month or per year? With both of us out of work right now, we're trying to find anyway to cut out $25 per month. Last year when we were both very gainfully employed I might have thought the same thing - now? Not so much. Not trying to be persnickity (sp?, how do you spell that anyway laugh.gif ), but things change.

I havent had my house appraised BUT when I got that nice little letter from Paulding tax on my home it showed that I would make about $5k if I sold my house now. I was like WHAT? I remember when we moved in I could have made out really good but now I would make NOTHING. Its so aggrivating.

I am sick of my property taxes going up just about every year. My mom lives in Cobb and pays quite a bit less in property taxes than I pay. Her house is worth double what mine is. I already got a letter from my mortgage company and we owe $180 on our shortfall. Our payment will go about $10/month. I am sick of every year getting a shortfall letter. Last year we had to pay about $600 to cover the shortfall.

When my husband and I tried to refinance our home a few months back we told the appraisers they could keep their appraisal. They appriased our house at almost $10,000 less than what we paid for it 8 years ago. My neighbor across the street has the same house and their house appraised for about $50,000 more than ours did.

If your assessment remains the same, you are going to see several increases over last year NOT including an increase in the county operating unless they can pull some rabbits out of the hat.

I have not done the math, but I would assume a $200,000 house will see and increase of $500 or so over last year, and maybe more.

Can someone clarify this question: it says above that due to a new law assessments can not go UP until 20011, but can they go DOWN? For example, if I have checked home sales in my n'hood and found that home values in my n'hood have fallen 30-40% - will my assessment go DOWN - automatically by the county - or will it stay the same as last year and I'll have to FIGHT it to prove the values dropped 30-40%?

I have not seen the news or read about it, but from reading here I believe the OP was saying it is a STATE increase. We, as prperty owners, will have to wait and see what the COUNTY may levy another huge burden on us

My property value went down, but my taxes are still higher.... $25 a month more is not going to break or make me, but I know that there are many out there for who $25 is an additional burden.

I fantasize about my dogs having jobs. I pretend that both of them are window cleaners and their kennel is their first starter home. I think the bigger dog is trying to bump off the smaller dog so he can have the kennel to himself. I know I have a problem, but don't animals have to earn a living too?

Dogs may not be our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.

A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

The more I see of humans, the more I admire dogs.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.


The dog is a gentleman, I hope to go to his heaven, not man's.

He mentioned the elimination of teacher planning days and the resurrection of an unpopular plan to tax health insurance companies as possible options that might need to be reconsidered. There was some good budget news from the state Thursday: The governorís office reaffirmed its intention to fund a property tax break for homeowners. That money ó more than $420 statewide ó is used to prop up local city, county and school board budgets without passing the full costs on to property taxpayers.

Despite the fundingís inclusion in the fiscal 2009 budget, and legislation this year affirming the stateís intention to fund the Homeowners Tax Relief Grant, there was some concern among local government officials in the state because the checks hadnít been sent out yet.

I guess we will have to see what Our County does but if we don't agree we can always appeal! Below is another line in the article about the freeze on property taxes and I think it does say that some counties may hike millage rates!


The law prevents local governments from hiking assessments during an economic downturn that has driven many property values down. But critics say without the ability to raise revenue from rising home assessments, some counties would hike their millage rates instead.

I have recieved a property reassesment from the county every year- it went up every year... I bet this year we won't get one because property values have gone down, I don't know if you can appeal unless you get an assessment? Prices of homes in a development behind me went down 10,000.00. A new development down the road is just paved roads, abandoned....we have a lot to pay for as it is from the King's reign, some things we never got to vote on. A 65million dollar courthouse complex. Our government officials, at the time, were doing what the country was living beyond the taxpayers means. We are already not getting the break from the state...... we have all kinds of school bonds, fire bonds, etc that eager people voted in... I bet they wish the vote could be recounted now. I would hope the county has enough sense not to up the millage rate, we have been screwed for years, we need a break!

You mean the double jeopardy school bond deal where corporations outside of Paulding were spending thousands of dollars to raise our taxes because it meant more profit for them?

Don't even try blaming that one on the intelligent citizens of the county. This was voted in the second time by a bunch of dumbass people that were mislead. I can guarantee you that if the vote was held this Tuesday it would be soundly defeated.

The fire tax was approved only because Jerry Shearin lied like a dog and the dumbass people believed him.

It's wrong when the people that own no property can decide how much the property owners have to pay.

Luckily we will have Bush and Shearin to blame stuff on for years to come.



And I suppose you don't think Shearin did anything wrong? Let's talk Freebird. In two hours I can tell you enough to change your mind. wink.gif

Don't confuse assessments with taxes. Earlier in this thread it was posted that the average homeowner would see an increase in their tax bill between 2 and 3 hundred $ per year. That is the amount that was for several years rebated per homeowner from the state to the county. That is gone this year. If the millage stays the same and your property values stay the same as last year then your tax will would rise by that amount. Now if the millage rate increase which it probably will and your assessment increases which mine has by 15,000, I will probably may more like $400.00 more a year. If your assessment when up you only have 23 days left to file an appeal.

See the "Property Assessment" thread for more info.

Folks can grumble and cuss about the democrats, but when Slick Willie was in the white house and the Democrats ran the State of Georgia, we didn't seem to be in the mess we're in now. All this economic mess started under the leadership of the GOP and now folks like Purdue, & Ricahardson are going to raise our taxes to fill the gap? angry.gif

Right now a $300 increase in taxes is a lot of money to a lot of families. angry.gif

Not that a tax increase is ever good, but in real terms it's $25/month.



Give them $25 and then they want $50, then $75................Sucks !!

You need to do some homework....
Republicans have created this whole mess.... Got to love you Repubs blaming those that have to clean up their mess.

Who has and is the current Governor? Sunny.... A republican.... Who spent like crazy for 8 years? Bush....

Obama has been in 6 months and has spent a lot to try to stimulate the economy.. Not working so far... but what would you do to clean up the Bush Repulican mess? (Do you think this all started on Jan 20th?) Give me a break and use your noggin a little bit.

It is time to vote every Paulding elected official out of office and get rid of the good ole boy system.

Do your part and vote them out ! !

Better to have a new clown in the office, then to let the current ones continue to rule.

Excellent post!
