Info session scheduled on proposed homestead exemptions

If you would like to learn more about the proposed, expanded property tax exemptions in Decatur, including the school tax exemption for homeowners over the age of 65, a session will be held on October 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the Decatur Recreation Center at 231 Sycamore Street.  This will certainly be the best opportunity to learn more about the proposals before voters consider them on Election Day.  From the October edition of the Decatur Focus:
Decatur's Lifelong Community Advisory Board's Taxation and Affordability Committee is hosting a Third Thursday information session for Decatur residents to learn more about the new homestead exemptions that will come up for vote on the Nov. 8 ballot.  Join them to learn more.
A panel from the City Schools of Decatur and the City of Decatur will answer questions and provide information about these five homestead exemptions.  One of them is an exemption from school property taxes for homeowners over the age of 65--an exemption that expires in five years, when it will be reevaluated.
For more information about the Decatur for a Lifetime initiative or the board, contact Lee Ann Harvey at 678-553-6548 or leeann.harvey@decaturga.com.
