Time To File Your 2016 Georgia Homestead Exemption

A homestead exemption allows a partial exemption of the assessed value of your home.  The amount varies for each county.  To quality a homeowner must file for homestead exemption at the county court house or tax office either in person, by mail or on the county’s website.

If you purchased land or investment property, please contact your county court house to see if a special homestead exemption is needed.  The following is a list of several counties with telephone numbers, websites and filing dates.  A few counties have on-line filing.
