Property Tax Appeal Project

Organization: Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Inc.

Property taxes are rising, making homeownership unaffordable for many clients.   In this critical project, volunteers assist homeowners by determining whether to appeal a property tax assessment, and how to appeal the assessment when appropriate. Law students can assist with tax assessment research and attorneys can represent or advice clients about advocacy at hearings.
