Georgia Unfair Governmental Property Tax Claims Lawsuit Lawyer

Homeowners expect to pay property tax on their home, but they also expect to pay the same amount as other homeowners with similar home values. Home assessment values used for property taxes are calculated by each county’s Board of Assessors in Georgia. These values should be uniform, based on actual assessed values, assuring that all homeowners are paying property taxes at the same rate. When discrepancies occur, it can create unfair property taxation for some homeowners.

Two homeowners in the same neighborhood with similarly valued homes should be paying the same tax rate. However, that has not always been the case in Georgia. Poor procedures for calculating current home values have created unfair taxation in some counties, forcing some homeowners to pay higher property taxes than others in the same neighborhoods with similarly valued homes. This unfair taxation has resulted in some homeowners looking at options for filing unfair governmental property tax lawsuits to recover their overpayments and bring a resolution to this problem.

One county in Georgia has been under the spotlight in recent years for unfair property taxation. Fulton County is accused of unfairly adjusting and raising some assessed home values, yet not others. It is estimated that the victims of this unfair taxation have overpaid millions of dollars in property taxes to the county. The issue may be addressed in a class action lawsuit to recover the overpaid taxes:
