If you purchased real estate property in 2019 and occupied it as your primary residence on January 1, 2020, you are potentially eligible to file for a homestead exemption. This can save you money each year on your home taxes!! It's easy to file and you only have to do it once for the life that you own the home!
What is it?
A homestead exemption is a discount on your real estate property tax bill for an owner-occupied principal place of residence.

Am I Eligible?
If the property is your principal place of residence as of January 1st, 2020 and you purchased last year (or any year prior), you are likely eligible to file for a homestead exemption with your county’s tax assessor’s office.
How much will it save me?
Savings vary depending upon where the property is located, but if you are eligible, you don’t want to miss the deadline for filing!
The deadline for filing is April 1st of this year for all counties in Georgia.
The best information regarding filing instructions will come from your county tax assessor’s office. If you are in a city, you may have to also file with the city (i.e. Milton, Roswell and Alpharetta). Below are the websites for the majority of tax assessors in the metro area – Some you can do this online and others you have to go to the Tax Assessors Office.
