Sharpening My Mediation Skills Through the Tax Appeal Process

It’s tax time! Metro counties, including Fulton, are sending out thousands of assessment notices to homeowners. If homeowners are unhappy with their assessment, they can appeal. Because of a change in the law requiring counties to assess property annually, everyone will get a notice this year. Tax officials are bracing for an unusually large number of appeals.

At the request of Fulton County Attorney David Ware, I will be handling some of these appeals on behalf of the Fulton County Board of Tax Assessors. Most of the Fulton Superior Court Judges assign their tax appeal cases to the Fulton County Office of Alternative Dispute Resolution before placing them on a trial calendar. I am looking forward to participating in the mediation process from the other side of the table.
