City & TIF Tax Information

Each “Decline” was calculated by subtracting Tax Year 2010 from the peak year shown. Usually the peak came in 2008, but not in all cases.

The 2010 tax info came from “DeKalb County Historical Listings by District, 2009-10” and are courtesy of the DeKalb County Clerk, John Acardo. I’d be glad to share the PDF upon request. Full tax information for Tax Year 2010 is still a work in progress but will be uploaded very soon to the DeKalb County and Clerk’s office web pages.
