Homestead exemption applications due today

If you are a homeowner in Decatur and your home here is your principal residence, you are eligible to apply for the basic homestead exemption from property taxes. Applications for the basic homestead can be made online hereIf you have already applied in a previous year, you do not need to reapply.  The exemption remains on your home for as long as you continue residing in the property with no changes in ownership.

Exemptions based on age or income can be applied for in-person at City Hall. Information about age-based exemptions can be found at www.decaturga.com/homestead or by calling us at 404-370-4100.

Although we will honor homestead exemption applications submitted up until April 1, please submit your applications by 5:00 p.m. on March 15 in order for your exemption to appear on your 1st installment property tax bill.  Please note that applications made to Decatur and DeKalb are handled separately:  if you've only applied with one office, you should check with the other office about your exemption status.
