Please see below link to compare property taxes between what we currently pay in unincorporated Dekalb and an estimate of what we would pay if annexed by Avondale estates.
1. Please ONLY change the yellow box for your homes value, everything else will change on it’s own. Please do not change any other fields.
2. This is the appraisal value Dekalb County uses to calculate your taxes. If you do not know it you can look up your value on the Dekalb county property tax website. This number is usually much lower than an actual appraised value.
3. I spent 2 hours researching & creating this but it is not perfect. Street lights are frontage based, so I picked 80 ft. It’s a small tax so it will not have a great affect. Also I could not find the HOST Credit formula because Dekalb does not seem to publish it. For my taxes it was a 56%, but I know others might be a different amount. It will have a minimal affect on comparison.
4. These amounts include both Homestead exemption & HOST credit where applicable. If you do not have homestead then this will not work for your property taxes.
