Work Session to Discuss 2017 Property Tax Assessment Work Session with Chief Appraiser Canceled

 

ATLANTA—A work session to discuss 2017 property tax assessments with the Fulton County chief appraiser has been canceled.

The meeting was originally scheduled for Thursday, June 29 at 11:30 a.m. Atlanta City Councilmembers requested the meeting to discuss freezing property assessments at 2016 levels and for the chief appraiser to provide greater transparency regarding the most recent property tax valuations.

Previously sent tax assessment notices reflected significant valuation increases for Fulton County’s 320,000 properties from last year’s levels.

Fulton County property owners have reached out to their elected officials to express concerns and pose questions regarding their most recent property assessment, as the tax value of some individual homeowners has increased dramatically.
