If you purchased a new home in Forsyth County, GA which acts as your primary residence, you won’t want to forget to apply for your Homestead exemption before April 1st.
The Homestead Exemption allows for a partial exemption on a portion of the assessed value of your primary home which lowers the amount of property tax you owe. If you do not apply before April 1st you will wait a full year before your application is processed.
YOU WILL NEED:
· DRIVER’S LICENSE OR STATE ISSUED ID: Address on your license must match the address of the property. If the address on your driver’s license does not match the property address, you must supply your Forsyth County motor vehicle registration or voter registration.
· COPY OF RECORDED WARRANTY DEED
· IF YOU MOVED HERE FROM ANOTHER STATE OR COUNTY AND STILL OWN YOUR PREVIOUS HOME, YOU MUST PROVIDE A LETTER FROM THAT JURISDICTION STATING THAT YOUR PREVIOUS EXEMPTION HAS BEEN REMOVED.
