Lower My Property Taxes! How to File for Your Homestead Exemption
March 11, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Home values are rising in Fulton County, and property tax bills are also going up. One of the easiest and most common ways to save money on property taxes is the homestead exemption, a legal provision that helps reduce the amount of tax owed on owner-occupied homes. Between now and April 1, Fulton County homeowners have a critical opportunity to apply for the homestead exemption and save on their 2020 tax bills. File once and the exemption is yours for as long as you own the home. There are also special exemptions available for aging individuals and people with disabilities. Surprisingly, many people aren’t even aware of these exemptions, much less how to take advantage of them.
Atlanta BeltLine Partnership (ABP), Atlanta Legal Aid Society (ALAS), and Grove Park Foundation have partnered to put together two free, 2-hour workshops designed to familiarize property owners with the homestead exemption and how it might apply to them. ALAS attorneys will lead the workshops, providing actionable information about how you can take advantage of this important exemption, and answering any questions you may have. Volunteers will be on hand to assist attendees in filing for their exemptions.
This workshop is free, but please register here so we know how many people to expect. Attendees will be entered to win a free Amazon Fire Stick and fitness watch. Food and beverages will be served.
You will receive additional details about the workshop and what you’ll want to bring with you in the email confirmation you receive after you register. Please be sure to read that email carefully.
