The continuing saga of the Fulton County tax notices. As reported earlier the tax notices sent out by Fulton County, required by the new state law, were erroneous. The county set up a series of public meeting encouraging property owners to attend. The purpose of the meetings was to explain the why’s and wherefore’s of the erroneous notices, and also the new appeal process.
A decision as to how to notify property owners regarding the needed corrections was up in the air mainly due to the cost. In late May the Fulton County Board of Assessors made the decision to mail out corrected notices. The new notices are scheduled to go out this weekend June 11th to Atlanta and nine other cities to correct the original erroneous notices. Thus the new deadline to appeal the tax notices will be July 26th. Sandy Springs, Johns Creek, Chattahoochee Hills, Mountain Park and unincorporated south Fulton will not receive new notices, and will keep the old deadline of June 21st.
