Atlanta Homestead Exemption

Jon Real Estate Leave a Comment

If you purchased your home in 2014, it’s time to start thinking about filing for your Homestead Exemption.

Homestead Exemption enables you to save a substantial amount on your annual property taxes. In Georgia, you’re entitled to the exemption if you have owned the home and it was your legal residence as of January 1 of the taxable year. You only need file for the exemption one time- once filed for, it’s valid for as long as you own your home.

Do not sleep on this opportunity.  If you miss our deadline, there is no late fee, “”do-over”” or forgiveness.  You literally have to wait another year before you can take advantage of the massive property tax savings.
