    A homestead exemption is a big tax break any Georgia homeowner is entitled to for their primary residence. It is against the law to file for more than one.

    But Channel 2 investigative reporter Justin Gray pulled records showing that the Greenes are getting the tax break on two different homes in two different counties.

    The Fulton County Board of Assessors said in a statement:

    “The property owners filed for homestead exemption in Fulton County in May of 2019 and it became effective for the 2020 tax year. Per GA law, you can only have one homestead exemption. In this case, Fulton County will consult with Floyd County to confirm and determine in which county the exemption is not valid.”

    T
    he penalty for filing a false homestead exemption according to Georgia code is twice your tax bill. For the Greenes, according to their 2020 bill, that could be nearly $12,000.

    There exists in some people the idea that taxation is, at heart, illegal, and that it is OK to do whatever one can to get away with not paying it.

    The former president even said not paying taxes made him "smart," and Snopes Fact Check found the statement to be true.

    Did Donald Trump Say Not Paying Taxes 'Makes Me Smart'? | Snopes.com

    I suppose the logical outgrowth of that is claiming that you had tried to correct the error and blaming the state agency for not receiving it.

    The last mayor of Baltimore (i.e. the city council president who replaced the previous mayor when she was indicted) pulled a similar stunt, though as I recall, nobody could figure if it was because he was mildly crooked or just too dumb to do the paperwork correctly (both seemed equally plausible). Baltimore residents voted him out. Let’s see if Georgia voters can live up to the illustrious example we’ve set.
