Want to save money on property taxes? Discover the benefits of homestead exemption!

Updated: Feb 8

In the state of Georgia, the homestead exemption is a legal provision that allows homeowners to reduce the amount of property taxes they owe on their primary residence. The exemption provides a set amount of value or a percentage reduction in the assessed value of the property that is exempt from taxation.

To be eligible for the homestead exemption in Georgia, you must own and occupy the property as your primary residence as of January 1st of the year in which you are applying for the exemption. You must also be a legal resident of Georgia, and the property must be located in Georgia.

The amount of the homestead exemption in Georgia varies depending on the county in which the property is located. Some counties also offer additional exemptions for seniors, disabled veterans, and other eligible groups.

To apply for the homestead exemption in Georgia, you must file an application with the tax assessor's office in the county where the property is located. The deadline to apply is generally April 1st of the year in which you are seeking the exemption, although some counties may have different deadlines.

It's important to note that the homestead exemption only applies to your primary residence.
