Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill changes the standard for recovering costs of litigation and attorney's fees on ad valorem tax valuations. Under O.C.G.A. 48-5-311(g)(4)(B)(ii)(III), the current standard is if the final determination of value is 85 percent or less than the valuation set by the board of equalization, hearing officer, or arbitrator, then the taxpayer can recover the costs. The bill changes this standard to 85 percent or less of the value set by the county board of tax assessors.
