Property Tax Calculator to Estimate Taxes around the Atlanta area
Brought to you by HomeAtlanta.com

Calculated from tax bills where millage rates are broken down and various homestead exemptions are applied to the proper portions of the millage rate, HOST credits taken into account, sanitation fees and stormwater fees included.

To get an estimate on property taxes, enter the price of the home and then click the "Click to Calculate  Taxes" button.   Don't take this as what you will actually pay.  Use it to compare various areas.  It's going to depend on what the tax assessor appraises your home for and the homestead exemptions that you qualify for.

The calculation used in this spreadsheet is as follows: 40% of the price of the home less the standard homestead exemption amount. Then divide that by 1000 and multiply it by the millage rate. Millage rates and exemption amounts as per sources that are linked to.  As of November 2011. There's also a column showing how much it is without the homestead exemption.  This is how much it would be if you were a landlord and renting it out.

DeKalb County has a special HOST (homestead optional sales tax) where they collect a 1% sales tax and at the end of the year they have to use at least 80% of that for additional homestead exemption credits.  This makes the calculation a little tricky but I did adjust for it.  This HOST credit is used on the county portion but not on the school or city portion. 

Be careful when you check the county websites for the property taxes.  Some local cities bill the city taxes separately from the county.  For example, Gwinnett County includes the local city taxes in their bills but they don't do it for Buford, Duluth, Norcross or Suwanee.  This calculator is the total for both city and county and also includes sanitation and stormwater fees.  It's as close to the final tax bill that you'll receive as I could make it.  To be exact, you should just call up the specific taxing authority and have them.

!!!! If you got a great deal on a home, taxes next year will be based on that new purchase price.  SB 346 is effective as of January 1, 2011. Here's a blog post I did on it.

48-5-2.... the transaction amount of the most recent arm's length, bona fide sale in any year shall be the maximum allowable fair market value for the next taxable year.

 

(Please verify all results yourself. Call the county tax assessor to double check. )

Where We Do Business

Our market area is in the north metro Atlanta area.  We service Cobb County, north Fulton County, Dekalb County, Forsyth County and Gwinnett County.  We are very familiar with Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, Marietta, Roswell, Alpharetta, Buckhead, and Midtown. 

We have sold homes inside the perimeter and outside the perimeter.  We can't know everything so for clients who want to look for property in Peachtree City, Newnan, Stone Mountain, Douglasville, Macon and areas further out we will gladly recommend a good agent who specializes in those areas.

We help buyers negotiate with builders for residential new construction houses. New houses in Atlanta are hot right now. We can represent you in the purchase of your new house built by any of the following builders: Torrey Homes, MDC Homes, Centex Homes, Pulte Homes, Morrison Homes, Ryland Homes, John Wieland Homes, Winmark Homes, Meridian Homes, John Willis Homes, Benchmark Homes and many more home builders.

We can help clients find short term apartments for rent but normally we don't work with clients who are just looking for rentals.  We do help clients find Atlanta condos.  We can also help you purchase HUD homes in Atlanta.  We are an authorized agent with them and have the HUD key to get into HUD homes.  We have access to foreclosure homes that banks want to sell.

We love showing executive homes and luxury homes. We always like to know how people find our site.  Send us an email and tell us which search term you used. Some terms that we might be found by are realty Atlanta, Ga homes, Atlanta realty, condos Atlanta, Atlanta realestate, Atlanta property, houses Atlanta, Atlanta realtors, Ga houses, or realtors Atlanta.  Maybe you found us by typing in Atlanta MLS listings, or Atlanta MLS search, or MLS Atlanta GA. Hopefully we don't come up under nursing homes or funeral homes.

It is always amazing to me how the Internet can allow total strangers to find each other and build new business relationships.  It truly is becoming a small, interconnected world.
