What is Homestead Exemption?

By

Homestead exemption is a tax relief for Georgia residents that own and occupy their primary resident. If you are going to live in the property you are purchasing file an application with the Tax Commissioners Office. Applications for Toombs County and Montgomery counties must be filed from January 1 through March 1 of the year for which the exemption is first claimed by the taxpayer. I recommend to new homeowners, when you receive all of your closing documents from the attorney file an application then. It is easy to forget about the exemption, until after you receive your tax bill and it's too late then. This is a one time filing, every year your exemption will automatically be renewed. Special exemptions can be filed for individuals over ages 65 and older, disabled veterans, un-remarried surviving spouses of veterans, and additional exemptions. If you think you may be eligible for one of these exemptions, go to your local tax commissioners office.
