    Did You Buy a New Home Last Year?

    A homestead exemption helps you save on taxes on your primary residence. An exemption help removes part of the value of your property from taxation and lowers your property tax bills.


    You may apply for homestead exemptions if you own, reside and claim the property as you primary residence. There are also some income and age related exemptions for which you may qualify.  You will want to file before April 1st of this year in order to take advantage of the tax break this year.  Once granted, the homestead exemption is automatically renewed each year as long as your status remains the same.

    As always, if you have any questions, please reach out to us 678-287-4848.
