A homestead exemption is a reduction in homeowners’ property taxes. To qualify, the homeowner must apply for this exemption on or before April 1st. Once granted, this exemption is automatically renewed each year as long as the home is continually occupied under the same ownership. The home must be the legal residence for all purposes including the registration of vehicles and the filing of income tax. A homestead exemption cannot be filed for rental property, vacant land or on more than one property. In addition to basic homestead exemption, there are additional exemptions for residents age 62 and older and/or disabled veterans. These exemptions must be applied for in person with Fulton County. For additional information and requirements, please contact 404-612-6440.
