Walter H. Hotz, Attorney
I handle all aspects of your appeal, including doing your hearing for you. The way I do your appeal should result in your new assessment [pursuant to OCGA 48-5-299(c)] being frozen for 3 years – the year appealed plus two more years!! Freezing the result that I obtain for you for 3 years, allows you to effectively dollar average your property taxes.
The fee for this personalized service for filing or taking over an appeal to the Board of Equalization is $350 plus 25% of your first year’s tax savings. You keep 75% of your first year’s savings and 100% for the second and third years.
A little background – previously, I was a lead national trial attorney for General Electric (for 25 years), litigating for GE all over the Eastern United States. But, since 2007, I have specialized in one very focused legal field – property tax appeals. I have negotiated settlements with Boards of Tax Assessors, been in countless Board of Equalization hearings and litigated property tax appeals in the Superior Court.
I can help you with your property taxes. I can file your property tax appeal for you – take over an appeal that you filed – and, although it is rarely necessary, I can file an appeal for you to the Superior Court.
