Homestead Exemption

Don't overlook an exemption on your property taxes!

The first quarter of each year is the time of year to file for exemptions with your municipality to make sure you receive the most favorable rate on your property tax bill. There are a number of exemptions available, and they vary based on your city and county.

For your convenience, we have compiled a list of where to file for the majority of the markets we serve. Please find the list below.

We have also attached a sample list of exemptions available from Dekalb County. Many of you will be familiar with the standard Homestead Exemption for your primary residence. Don't forget that there are often additional exemptions based on age, for veterans, and others.

Deadlines are STRICT

While the exemptions typically only need to be filed once in Georgia, and they remain in effect for subsequent years, if you miss the filing deadline you will not get the benefit of the exemption until the following year.

If for some reason you are beyond the filing deadline, go ahead and file so you will be ahead of the game for the following year.

Filing Links

We work to keep these up to date, but they do change from time to time.  Please let us know if you find any broken links, or have issues with the process.

Please note:  In most areas you only have to file with the county, but there are cities who require you to file with them directly as well.  We have noted some below, but cannot ensure we are aware of every change that occurs.  It is your responsibility to confirm with your tax authorities that you have taken all of the necessary steps to achieve any / all exemptions you may be entitled to.  This information is provided as a reminder and an aide to get you started with the process.

My absolute passion is helping people find homes that foster the lives they want to live, and that build wealth for them and their families.
