Helen Burns Sharp, Founder

ATM, Chattanooga

Chattanooga is home to a grassroots movement organized by citizens who believe we can persuade our local elected officials to reform the current "system" for granting property tax breaks. This broad-based coalition calls itself "ATM" (Accountability for Taxpayer Money). We believe it is time to transition from what oftentimes appears to be a corporate welfare program to an approach that better reflects the PUBLIC interest. By doing research and offering constructive suggestions, ATM hopes to be part of the solution. Please find time in your busy life to read the section on PILOTs. This issue matters to you and to our community. 



The PILOTs page gives an overview of the entire program and an analysis of past housing PILOTs


See "New PILOTs" page for description of new housing program.

See "Walnut Commons" page to read about opportunity to get this PILOT back on the tax rolls.
