The article presents the author's views on Atlantans regarding city tax. According to the author, for some Atlantans, city taxes are a thing of the future. Primarily for loft and condo developments with "Urban Enterprise Zone" status, tax-abatement incentives are an effort to revitalize and encourage property development in areas like Peoplestown, Reynoldstown, Old Fourth Ward and Downtown Atlanta. The good news is that these incentives works for re-sales too as all tax-abatement incentives stay with the property. The information about some lofts with tax abatement and price ranges is also offered in the article.
