How can I qualify for Homestead Exemption?

Posted by Becca Graham on

To qualify, you must own and occupy the property as your legal residence as of January 1 of the current tax year. There is no deadline to apply; however; to receive the exemption for the current year, applications must be filed by April 1 of the current year. Applications filed after April 1 will be considered for the following year. For additional information on eligibility or the proper method of applying for an exemption, you may call Cobb Tax Assessors’ Office at (770) 528 3100 or visit www.cobbtax.org.
