Free Homeowner Empowerment Workshops - 2/23, 3/3, 3/7, 316

Do you own the home that you live in? Did you know you could easily save a lot of money on your property taxes, even if you are away from your home for health reasons?

One of the easiest ways is the homestead exemption — which permanently decreases property taxes for resident homeowners. File for homestead exemption and these savings are yours for as long as you own your home.

Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, the Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Atlanta City Council Members Joyce Sheperd and Carla Smith, and the Grove Park Foundation have partnered to put together a series of four free, 2-hour workshops to show property owners how to apply for and take advantage of the homestead exemption.
  • Saturday, February 23 from 10 am-noon at Arthur Langford Jr. Recreation Center
  • Sunday, March 3 from 2-4 pm at Metropolitan Library
  • Thursday, March 7 from 6-8 pm at Families First
  • Saturday, March 16 from 12:30-2:30 pm at Paradise Baptist Church
