Alpharetta seeks answers behind ‘zero-value’ property

Dozens of parcels in Alpharetta slipped past tax assessments last year, leaving the city, the county and Fulton Schools with no way to collect tens – possibly hundreds – of thousands of dollars owed in taxes. The properties, both commercial and residential, are primarily associated with recent development in the city. They were removed from the tax rolls when the Fulton County Assessor’s Office changed their status to “deactivated” because their lots were reconfigured. We sat down with the reporter who broke the story, Pat Fox, to give us the story behind the story.
