A YEAR OF CHALLENGES
The property tax assessment process was a big challenge this year but we worked through the problems and were able to provide taxpayers necessary protection. I'm pleased to tell you that at the close of 2017, we are wrapping up the year with more than adequate collections for county and local governments, as well as Fulton and Atlanta Public Schools. I extend my personal thanks to all the taxpayers who have already paid their taxes which will allow us to meet our financial obligations, pay employees and deliver services. Thank you to all who have provided critical feedback on the best ways to fix our property tax system. I remain focused on tax reform, including caps for homeowners, expanded exemptions for seniors and general reforms of the assessment process.
