Taxpayers for a fair deal is a group of citizens coming together to demand a fairer deal for taxpayers concerning the fact that the Fulton County Board of Tax Assessors has no plans to impose a property tax on the Mercedes-Benz stadium.
We do not support the plan not to send the Atlanta Falcons a property tax bill on the new stadium. It is unfair to all the citizens of Atlanta and Fulton county.
We do not believe that it is fair for public monies to be expended on private sports stadiums and arenas without a vote by registered voters in a referendum.
Hundreds of millions of dollars spent on these venues for the profit of team owners without a vote by the public is anti-democratic and an invitation to public corruption.
We believe that, at the very least, these venues should pay their fair share of ad valorem property taxes just as the average homeowner and business owner does.
