What Are Homestead Exemptions

Homestead exemptions have been enacted to reduce the amount of property tax paid on residential property for Cobb County residents. Exemptions apply to homestead property you own and occupy as your legal residence.

Homestead exemptions are deducted from the assessed value of the qualifying property (40% of the fair market value). To receive the benefit of the homestead exemption, you must file an initial application. You can use the same application for all types of exemptions.

Cobb County Tax Commissioner’s office processes all Homestead Exemption applications.

Applications can be accepted by mail, making this process easy and convenient for homeowners
