The homestead exemption is a tax break on an owner's primary residence. In Georgia, the deadline to apply is typically April 1. Failure to apply by that date prevents you from taking advantage of the homestead exemption for that calendar year. Find your county below for more information, and if you live in a city municipality, there may be additional requirements.
