APS joins Fulton County Schools in property tax fight

- Atlanta Public Schools are joining Fulton County Schools in taking action to collect property taxes.

Atlanta Public School Superintendent Dr. Meria Carstarphen said the state rejecting Fulton County’s tax digest puts the school's finances in peril.

The system said if taxes aren't collected soon, Atlanta Public Schools will be forced to get a loan which would cost hundreds of thousands in interest.

The hearing for a temporary collection order is slated for November 3.
