This weekend, the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership will team up with the Atlanta Legal Aid Society (ALAS) and city councilmembers Joyce Sheperd and Ivory Lee Young to host free tax workshops.
The workshops are designed to help Fulton County residents understand their 2018 property tax statements and the appeal process, an ABP press release said.
Many local property owners are facing substantial increases this year to the assessment of the value of their property and the resulting taxes, ABP said. The workshops will help people make sense of these increases.
ALAS lawyers will be on hand to provide information on this year’s statements and explain the appeal process, for which the deadline is July 6.
Both workshops are scheduled for Saturday, June 23. Each is free and open to the public, but attendees are asked to register for an expected head count.
The first will take place from 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at the Rick McDevitt Youth Center, located at 1040 Crew St SW, Atlanta, Ga. 30315. Go here to register for the first meeting.
That same afternoon, another will occur from 2 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. at Families First, 80 Joseph E. Lowery Blvd NW, Atlanta, Ga. 30314. You can register for the second meeting at this link.
Please be sure to bring the property tax statement you received with you to the meeting.
