House bill 344 known as the sales and use tax bill was recently approved by Georgia lawmakers, in the State House. It would make nonprofits like Habitat for Humanity exempt from some property taxes. Currently in the state of Georgia vacant properties owned by nonprofit organizations that are used to build houses on, may or may not be taxed. It depends on the county. However, the passage of House Bill 344 would mean no taxes on those properties. Kathy Jenkins, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity Bulloch County, said the proposed bill would be helpful.
