All exemptions require that the owner occupy the homestead on January 1 and must be applied for in person in the Tax Commissioner's Office. Applications for all exemptions can be made year round, but must be made prior to April 1st to be effective in the calendar year in which the application is made. You are not required to file annually, but you must notify the Tax Commissioner’s Office if you no longer qualify for the Exemption.

Accepted forms of Proof of Age:

Birth Certificate, Georgia Drivers License or Georgia I. D. Card

Proof of Disability — Disabled Persons:

Affidavits from two different Georgia physicians stating that you are 100% (totally) and permanently disabled or paid at 100% rate, or one Georgia physician's affidavit and certification from the Social Security Administration stating that you are 100% (totally) and permanently disabled or paid at a 100% rate.

Proof of Disability Veteran:

Verification by the Veterans Administration as totally (100%) and permanently disabled and entitled to 100% service connected disability as of January 1 of the tax year for which you are making application. The V.A. Awards letter must state the date the 100% rating was awarded or the date compensation began at 100%.. If applying as the un-remarried widow(er) of a veteran killed in armed conflict, documentation from the Secretary of Defense that he/she received death benefits as a result of the death of a spouse killed while on active duty.
