As state governments face revenue shortfalls during periods of recession, fewer tax dollars are returned to counties and cities to cover the costs of public services. The temptation to look to the property tax base for relief can start to look like a pressing necessity for local government officials.
Our attorneys are here to protect taxpayers' rights when local taxing authorities twist the screws a little too hard. We can challenge the valuations used in reassessing your property or demonstrate hardship circumstances that can make the difference in a close case. For larger businesses and employers, tax breaks might have served as an incentive to get you to create jobs in a particular location. We can help you hold local government to its commitments.
Several of our lawyers have experience with municipal law as counsel for local governments in North Georgia cities and counties. One of our attorneys served as counsel for the Cobb County Board of Equalization. Our insight into property tax decision processes from the government perspective help us to best serve our clients.
In addition to property tax disputes, we also represent taxpayers in sales tax and business license disputes, including defense in collections actions. For additional information, contact a knowledgeable municipal taxation attorney at Sams, Larkin & Huff in Marietta.
