Rita James, 76, found herself in court fighting for her home. James found out that a company was charging her with back rent for the home that she purchased in 1964. According to Atlanta Journalist-Commission, the problem started with a billing error by the tax commissioner’s office 18 years ago. The county issued a tax lien on her house and sold it to a private company who then auctioned off the home to Intown Ventures who pursued their rent even after the mistake was uncovered.
