The new homestead exemption, approved November 4, 2019, will automatically apply to all properties within COSF with a homestead exemption in place; as well as future homestead applications. If you do not already have the regular homestead exemption, you must apply directly with the Fulton County Tax Assessors Office either online, in person, or by mail. Homestead Exemption Applications may be filed with the Fulton County Board of Assessors office year round; however; all applications filed by April 1, 2020 will be applicable for tax year 2020. Applications received after April 1, 2020 will be effective for tax year 2021. Once granted, exemptions are automatically renewed each year as long as the homeowner continually occupies the property under the same ownership.
