CONYERS, G. – By April 30, the Rockdale County Board of Assessors will mail Notice of Assessments to citizens, providing information about the 2021 Property Tax Assessment. Property owners will have 45 days to appeal after receiving the notice.
It is important to note that while the notice will display a simulated bill that will forecast what property owners can expect, the Notice of Assessment mailed in April is not a bill.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Assessors has also launched the new Homestead Exemption online application, which will eliminate the need for residents to file for an exemption in person.
Homeowners can file for an exemption by visiting rockdalecountyga.gov. Go to the “County Departments’ tab, hover over “Board of Assessors” and clic on “Homestead Exemptions”. From there, Homeowners should click on the link “Online Homestead Application.” From there, homeowners will be directed to a new homepage, where a search for a particular address may take place.
Full instructions of how to file for the exemption online can be seen in this video: https://vimeo.com/521413569
The deadline to file for the exemption is April 1 of each taxable year. In addition to the convenience of filing online, residents will only have to file for the Homestead Exemption once, unless they are filing for a different exemption (i.e. a senior or disability exemption).
For more information, contact the Board of Assessors at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-278-7676.
