Fulton County Tax Assessment Fiasco

As one of the 320,000 residences who received a tax assessment this week, I was shocked and dismayed by the 22 percent jump in my property value. This new increase is a whopping $90,000 higher than any home that has ever sold in my neighborhood history. Shortly after the assessments went out, the phone calls, emails, social media posts and texting started. I am not the only one to receive countless complaints in less than one day. I am witnessing a consistent theme of massive increases across the board with little or no rationale. It is clear that the Fulton County taxation process is broken.

Over the past few years, we have seen an improvement with certain services and specifically management of Fulton County. However, similar to the never ending voting problems, this is significant and needs immediate attention and correction. I have addressed this concern and requested an immediate investigation by the Fulton County Commission.

I will update you as more information becomes available.  You may appeal your property value with the following link: http://www.qpublic.net/ga/fulton/appeals.html.
