Local Option School Tax Homestead Exemption
For those Senior Citizens who qualify (and apply), this Exemption deducts $40,000 from their property assessment prior to the calculation of COUNTY school taxes.
Property Owners who live inside the town limits of the Town of Trion DO NOT PAY County School Taxes -- rather they pay taxes for the Trion City School System when they pay their city tax bill.
Trion has a similar exemption for its Senior Citizens, so if you live inside the town limits of Trion, and you meet the Qualification listed at the link, contact the Town of Trion to apply.
