Several types of homestead exemptions have been enacted to reduce the burden of ad valorem taxation for Georgia homeowners. These exemptions only apply to property owned by the taxpayer and occupied as his or her legal residence on January 1 of the taxable year.
To file for homestead, the applicant must provide a valid Georgia Driver’s License or Georgia Identification Card that states the physical address they are seeking the exemption for. As a supplement to the driver’s license or identification card, staff may also request additional information to show proof of residency.
