Favorable taxes at The Aberdeen in Vinings

October 28, 2009
For many homeowners the arrival of their annual property tax bill causes much consternation and gnashing of teeth. This year has been especially frustrating for many Fulton County/City of Atlanta residents as tax bills have been delayed due to a series of miscalculations arising from changes in a 2004 state tax law. The recalculation of the tax bills will result in some residents facing additional tax payments.

Vinings, located in Cobb County, adjacent to the Atlanta city limits, has great schools, neighborhoods and a well maintained infrastructure, and has always had the bragging rights for great tax savings. As homeowners focus on tightening of their financial belts during these difficult economic times, it is worth noting the tax benefit of home ownership in Vinings versus City of Atlanta.

  Fulton County/City of Atlanta Cobb County/Vinings
Home Value                            $1,000,000.00 $1,000,000.00
Tax rate/Millage*                              44 11*
Tax  $17,600.00 $4,000.00

Annual savings:  $13,200.00
