Fulton County Corrected Tax Notices

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.

So did they send out erroneous tax notices on purpose that were high and if folks don't want to pay it, they have to object??

That is good Judi!!!  LOL  But here is what they did do.  They sent out corrected notices for the county taxes, but since the law did not indicate they had to pick up the exemptions for the citites, they just sent out the notices with no exemptions for city taxes.  Thus the notices did NOT reflect the correct city taxes. More to blog about.
