It’s a new year, and if you purchased a home in 2017, now is the time to file for your homestead tax exemption! This will save you money if the property you purchased is your primary residence. You can do this by contacting your local property tax office and asking for an application. You will only have to apply once for this tax savings, and you can benefit from this for years to come. Deadline to file is March 31st in Carroll County, GA. You must go to the tax office and present your drivers’ license showing your new address. It’s a good idea to bring along a copy of the settlement statement you received at closing as well. Happy savings!
