LEGAL REQUIREMENTS: Although you may apply any time after moving into the house, homestead exemption applies ONLY to the house owned and occupied by the taxpayer as his/her legal residence as of JANUARY 1. Note: All applications must be received by the Tax Commissioner’s Office on or before April 1 of the qualifying year. Douglas County has additional exemptions for 62 year olds or older, disabled veterans or their surviving spouses, and the totally disabled homeowners. Qualifiers for these exemptions cannot apply online but must APPLY IN PERSON in the Tax Commissioner’s Office by April 1 of the qualifying year. Please call (770) 920-7272 for further information concerning proof of age or disability.
Failure to submit this application on or before April 1, forfeits your right to Homestead Exemption for that Tax Year.
