Homeowner Empowerment Workshops

Homeowner Empowerment Workshops

We are excited to announce that our initial series of free homeowner empowerment workshops for 2019 will focus on helping people understand and file for their property tax homestead exemption.

As 2018 demonstrated, 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 2019 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.

The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership (ABP), the Atlanta Legal Aid Society (ALAS), Atlanta City Council Members Joyce Sheperd and Carla Smith, and the Grove Park Foundation have partnered to put together a series of four 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.

Individual assistance may be available for persons with disabilities, aging individuals and eligible individuals with title issues.
