This appears to be a direct violation of the guideline standards prepared by the State Government IRS rules set forth for Ga. counties to use ! If no data is available, then other alternative calculations can then be&nbsp;applied but only for that reason.</p> Sat, 18 Oct 2014 19:00:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-to-SUCCESFULLY-Appeal-Your-Upcomming-Georgia-Property-Tax-Assessment/437313/ 2014-10-18T19:00:00Z I have the same story and ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-to-SUCCESFULLY-Appeal-Your-Upcomming-Georgia-Property-Tax-Assessment/437313/ I have the same story and same feelings.&nbsp; I think what they are doing is illegal.
