If you owned a property on January 1, 2021, I am talking to you!
You must apply for Property Exemption(s) before March 31, 2021.
If your home is owner-occupied, you automatically qualify for a Homestead exemption and assessment freeze. This is one of the few middle class tax exemptions left. For example, the standard tax on a 2 bedroom home may be about $2400/yr. With the Homestead Exemption it is closer to $1400/yr. In addition, there are several other exemptions for senior citizens, disabled people, widows of police, fire and military killed in action, etc. Go to your county website and make sure you file by March 31st. Links for several of the metro county webpages are on my webpage at https://newthresholdmortgagecorp.proiwebsites.com/NewThresholdAtlantaExpert
See the DeKalb list of all possible exemptions here: (https://dekalbtax.org/exemptions) Other than the Homestead Exemption, you have to apply in person for these others. The process is not difficult but it must be completed before March 31. Go get it Tiger!!
