Homestead exemptions reduce property taxes for most homeowners by sheltering a certain amount of a home’s value from taxes. You are entitled to a homestead exemption if you owned your home as of January 1st in a taxable year, you actually occupy the home, and it is your legal residence. Homestead exemptions usually apply as long as the homeowner lives in the residence.
The deadline to file is April 1st for most Georgia Counties, but make sure to check with your local County Tax Commissioner’s office to file and save.
