Homestead Exemptions

The City has several types of homestead exemptions. To qualify for any homestead exemption, a property owner must own and occupy their home as primary residence as of January 1st on the year of exemption application. Only the parcel of primary residence qualifies for homestead exemption.

Basic Homestead Exemption is $15,000. This exemption is applied for only through Fulton County. Once approved for basic homestead exemption by Fulton County, the city’s basic homestead exemption will also be applied.

In order to be eligible for Senior or Full Value Homestead Exemptions for a calendar year, property owners must file with the County between January 1st and March 31st of that same year. Applications received after March 31st will become eligible the following year.

The following exemptions are offered by the City of Chattahoochee Hills. The filing deadline for all city homestead exemptions is March 31st of the year of exemption. You do not have to reapply each year, unless there is a change in ownership or income status.

Senior Basic Exemption of $15,000 is available to residents’ age 65 or older on or before January 1st of the year in which the application for exemption is submitted.

Additional $10,000 Senior Homestead is available to homeowners who meet certain income requirements and are 65 or older on or before January 1st of the year in which the application for exemption is submitted.
