Got a homestead but not an exemption? Tomorrow, Friday, April 1, is the last day to apply with the Muscogee Tax Commissioner’s Office for a homestead exemption on your property.
The house must be your primary residence, and there’s only one to a customer.
The standard homestead exemption takes $2,000 off your assessment for state taxation and $13,500 off for local assessment tax purposes, according to Tony Floyd, chief deputy tax commissioner..
Once you’ve been approved for the exemption, it stays. There’s no need to re-apply, until you buy another property.
