This week, the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership will be hosting a series of workshops aimed at helping homeowners understand their tax bills and learn how to navigate the appeal process. The first workshop will be held tonight, from 6:00 – 8:30pm at Atlanta Metropolitan State College (Conference Room A), 1630 Metropolitan Pkwy SW Atlanta, GA 30310.
Property owners in Fulton County have received their 2018 property assessment and estimate of taxes due later this year. Many property owners are facing substantial increases this year to the assessment of the value of their property and the resulting taxes. But what if you don’t understand your statement and the information it contains? What are your options if you are caught off guard and overwhelmed by the amount of your increase and you want to appeal?
The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, Atlanta City Councilmembers Joyce Sheperd and Ivory Lee Young, NPU-V and the Atlanta Legal Aid Society are partnering to conduct three free 2.5 hour workshops that will help you understand your property tax statement and the options available to those who want to appeal. ALAS lawyers will be on hand to thoroughly explain all of the information on the 2018 statement and review the appeal process and requirements.
The deadline for filing an appeal is July 6. Please remember to bring the property tax statement you received in the mail to the workshop.
Please see attached a flyer that can be used to promote all three of next week’s workshops. Sorry for the delay in getting this finalized but lots of moving parts to coordinate. The vanity URL listed – beltline.org/tax-workshop – takes you to a page where you can choose which workshop you want to attend.
