County's Failure to Timely Schedule a Hearing Helps Owner Prevail

In Fulton County Bd. of Tax Assessors v. Westside Atlanta Retail, 2022 Ga. App. LEXIS 226 (Case No. A22A0555), decided on May 4, 2022, the Georgia Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court's grant of summary judgment in favor of the property owner. The trial court had affirmed the Board of Equalization's finding that the value asserted by the owner was the value for the property because the appeal administrator failed to timely schedule a hearing as required by O.C.G.A. § 48-5-311 (e.1). The tax assessors' review period and the time within which the Board of Equalization must schedule a hearing run concurrently, for a total of 180 days from the time the notice of appeal is received by the tax assessors.
