The Homestead Exemption is available to legal residents of Georgia for their primary homes, which can amount to substantial property tax savings. You are entitled to the Homestead exemption this year if you owned and occupied your home by January 1. Senior citizens may have additional exemptions available - check with your county tax office.

What You Need in Order to File:
A copy of the recorded warranty deed, Social Security numbers of all persons on the deed, the mortgage holder, and the amount of the mortgage. Note: Some counties may require a copy of the closing statement and proof of age for senior citizens.
