Property tax talk in Kirkwood Wednesday
The Pullman in Kirkwood is hosting a property tax talk Wednesday, June 10 at 7 p.m.
The company EQUITAX Property Tax Advisors will have a representative there to answer questions about appealing increases to property taxes.
A description of the event says EQUITAX’s Ernie Cole “will explain, in plain English, how the process works, what the county will/won’t accept for comps, how to pull yours together, how to best stage your appeal, answer your questions, etc.”
It also says, “To pile on extra goodness, this event is free, and Dan at the Pullman has kindly offered to give Neighbor in Need 10 percent of the proceeds from any food or bevvies you purchase…win, win, win.” Neighbor in Need’s website describes it as a volunteer-run mission “to help low income elderly living in the communities of East Lake, Kirkwood and Edgewood, East Atlanta and Decatur’s Oakhurst Community make emergency home repairs.”
The Pullman is located at 1992 Hosea L Williams Dr NE, Atlanta, GA 30317.
While you could pay a company like EQUITAX to appeal your property appraisal, you can also appeal the assessment yourself. DeKalb County’s Tax Commissioner site says, “When you receive the Annual Assessment Notice from our office at the end of May, you will have 45 days to appeal if you do not agree with the Current Year Value displayed.”
