A similar case a few streets away:

All saw a reduction in property taxes and increase in property values. Average tax decrease 17%, average property value increase 11% (Homestead Exemptions Transfer Fully)

The process is simple-
Under Georgia Law – O.C.G.A. 36-36-31 – a contiguous area abutting to the city of Atlanta may be annexed by 60% of landowners and voters signing a petition.
The city even has a simple website that provides great detail how to do this.
If you would like lower taxes, increased property values, and access to better city services all you need to do is call or text Nick & Kristen Jackson at (404) 666-2560 or pledge to sign the petition here, it’s that easy. As of this letter 11 other households have signed the petition. We humbly ask if you are interested in signing the petition to contact Nick & Kristen within 2 weeks of reviewing this information.
This is an example from the City of Atlanta’s site for tax assessments
As you can see the city even advertises for a reduction in property taxes vs Unincorporated Dekalb
The City of Atlanta has a balanced budget and has not had a property tax increase in 7 years!
