Apply for the Fulton County Homestead Exemption

Fulton County homeowners are entitled to a homestead tax exemption on their home property.

To apply, you must own your home and it must have been your legal residence as of January 1 of this year. Additionally, you (and your spouse if you have one) may not claim a homestead exemption on any other property.

Once granted, the exemption is automatically renewed each year as long as you continue to own the home and reside in it.

Claiming a special exemption?

Senior citizen exemptions (and all other special exemptions) must be applied for in person at a Fulton County Board of Assessors office.

In order to complete this application, you will need pictures or scanned copies of these documents:

  • A state-issued identification card or driver's license.
  • A vehicle registration card for every vehicle registered at your home.
Please take a moment to gather your documents. If you're on a phone or tablet, you can take a clear photo of each document.

This application takes about 10 minutes to fill out.

Applications for 2018 are now closed

We'll be back later in the year to accept 2019 applications.
