Homestead Exemptions

Exemption Requirements

Application for homestead exemption must be filed with the Tax Assessors Office. A homeowner can file an application for homestead exemption for their home and land any time during the calendar year. To receive the homestead exemption for the current tax year, the homeowner must have owned the property on January 1 and filed the homestead application by April 1. Homestead applications that are filed after this date will not be granted until the next calendar year. (O.C.G.A. § 48-5-45)

In order to qualify for a homestead exemption, the applicant’s name must appear on the deed to the property and they must own, occupy and claim the property as their legal residence on January 1 to be eligible for any exemption for that tax year. The applicant may claim exemptions on only one property, this includes other Georgia counties and other states. You must provide legal evidence of residency and United States citizenship, such as a Georgia driver’s license or Georgia ID card.

Exemptions are not automatic and each exemption must be applied for individually.
