City Property Tax Bills Soon In Mailboxes

Released September 28, 2023 02:35 PM

City of Alpharetta homeowners will begin seeing annual property tax notices in their mailboxes in the coming days.  While they may have already received a property tax bill from Fulton County that covers the county and school system property taxes for the year, the City of Alpharetta bills separately to avoid having to pay the County for that service.


The City will begin mailing the notices to the owner of record shortly after October 1, based on January 01, 2023, records from the Fulton County Tax Assessor, for each property parcel.  If a property owner has not received their City tax bill by Saturday, October 15, he or she is encouraged to contact the City of Alpharetta by sending an email to


The City provides multiple homestead exemptions that save our homeowners over $8.8 million annually, helping to keep Alpharetta an affordable place to live and raise a family.  This year, the property tax bills of eligible homesteaded property owners will also reflect savings from the one-time Georgia Homeowners Tax Relief Grant that was approved by the Governor and General Assembly earlier this year.  The grant reduces the assessed value of eligible properties by up to $18,000 and is estimated to save Alpharetta homeowners an additional $1.1 million this year.


While most homeowners pay their property taxes through an escrow connected to their monthly mortgage payment, some do pay directly.  Those who pay directly can make their payment online at once they have received their bill.


There is also an online payment option for personal property taxes.  Personal property is everything not considered real property; typically inventory and fixtures used in conducting business as well as boats, aircraft, machinery, etc.  Personal property tax payments can be made at


Property tax payments are due by December 01, 2023.
