Tax digest amounts represent 100% assessed valuation. The net levy represents the amount billed and not the amount collected.

The above totals are subject to some revisions due to properties that are under appeal. O.C.G.A. 48-5-311 requires

temporary tax bills based on 85% of the year's assessed valuation or the taxpayers' return value, whichever is greater.

$46,099,982 was added to the 2021 Tax Digest by reassessment.
