Marjorie Taylor Greene Allegedly Broke Georgia Law By Taking Tax Exemptions On Two Homes

Topline

Controversial freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) may have violated property tax laws in her home state of Georgia by listing two different houses as her primary residence, an Atlanta television station alleged Friday.

Key Facts

Greene and her husband filed “homestead exemptions” on a house they own in Fulton County as well as another one in Floyd County, allowing them to claim sizable property tax breaks offered to owner-occupants, Atlanta’s WSB-TV reported Friday, citing tax records.

In a statement to WSB-TV, Greene cast the apparent snafu as a paperwork issue that is already “being taken care of,” and told reporter Justin Gray he should “mind his own business instead of launching yet another pathetic attempt to smear me and my family.”

Forbes has reached out to Greene’s office for comment.

Key Background

Greene has drawn near-constant outrage since winning the Republican nomination for a deep-red northern Georgia House seat last year. She has expressed support for the false QAnon conspiracy theory before later backtracking while in office, suggested multiple school shootings were staged, and backed former President Donald Trump’s baseless voter fraud allegations. She and her staff also have a reputation for getting into confrontations with other members of Congress, and before getting elected to Congress, she appeared sympathetic to the idea of violence against her political opponents.
