Atlanta, GA--  (Submitted by Fulton County Communications)

The Fulton County Board of Assessors reminds property owners that April 1, 2011 is the deadline to file for homestead exemption. The basic homestead exemption amount increased from $25,000 to $30,000 for the 2011 tax year. If you are currently receiving the basic homestead exemption, you do not need to reapply unless there is a change of ownership on the property. The increased amount will automatically be granted to homeowners who are currently receiving this exemption and to first-time applicants who qualify.

To qualify for any exemptions, you must own and occupy the property as your primary residence as of January 1, 2011 and be a permanent legal resident of Fulton County. You also are required to present a valid Georgia photo identification and provide a current copy of your Fulton County vehicle registration.
