Georgia Surviving Spouse Tax Exemptions, Referendum E (2006)
Referendum E approved a homestead tax exemption for the unremarried surviving spouse of a peace officer or firefighter who was killed in the line of duty.
Text of measure
Georgia law (Code Section 21-2-4 of the O.C.G.A.) requires that when an election will take place on proposed statutes, the Georgia Secretary of State must provide a neutral summary and explanation of each proposal.
The question and description are incorporated into a voter guide that voters may consult prior to casting their vote.
|"Shall the Act be approved which provides a homestead exemption for the full value of the homestead with respect to all ad valorem taxes for the unremarried surviving spouse of a peace officer or firefighter who was killed in the line of duty?"|
| This section of this Act provides that the unremarried surviving spouse of a peace officer or firefighter who was killed in the line of duty shall be entitled to a total exemption of the homestead from all ad valorem taxes.
If approved by a majority of the voters, this section of the Act becomes effective on January 1, 2007, and applies to all tax years beginning on or after that date.
