Buckhead Property Taxes Based On Purchase Price

When shopping for a home in Buckhead (or anywhere in Georgia), the most important thing to know is that the year following your purchase, you will be taxed at the rates above based on what you paid for the home. Many buyers look only at what the sellers current taxes are….that is not always a proper reflection of what you can expect your taxes to be.
