Homestead Exemption Deadlines for 2017 metro Atlanta Property Tax Bills


Here is the contact information for 11 Metro Atlanta Counties to file Homestead Exemptions. Every year, I speak to a few people who have to pay a higher property tax bill than necessary because they missed the deadline. Follow the link to the county of your residence and complete the form today! You do not need to complete the form every year, once you file for the Homestead Exemption it will remain until you move or sell the property.

Homeowners may need to provide their Warranty Deed book and page, proof of residence, social security numbers, driver’s license and car tag info. In most counties, to be eligible for the current year, you must have owned and occupied the property as of January 1st. If the property is located within city limits, the homeowner may be required to file with the city as well.
