83% Property Tax Reduction
In 2021 MPT appealed Fulton County's increase in valuation of a vacant lot from $550,000 to $2,137,000.00. After months of litigating the appeal in superior court MPT won Summary Judgment reducing the tax value all the way down to $350,000. This amounted to an 83% reduction and the owner saw his tax bill go from $34,025.31 all the way down to $5,572. The county additionally paid all of the taxpayer's attorneys' fees incurred in brining the court appeal.
