Legislation To Increase Oconee County Homestead Exemption Awaits Drafting In Legislative Counsel, County Chair Says

***Legislative Delegates Have Not Responded***

Although Oconee County’s three state legislators have been unwilling to confirm, the Board of Commissioner’s request for legislation to increase the county’s property tax homestead exemption is in the queue with the General Assembly’s Legislative Counsel, Board Chair John Daniell said on Friday.

County Attorney Daniel Haygood also said on Friday that he was aware that the request had been submitted to Legislative Counsel, but he had not yet heard from Counsel.
