All exemptions must be filed with the Assessors Office, 222 W. Oglethorpe Ave., Suite 113., 1st Floor of the Pete Liakakis Government Building between 8:00am and 5:00pm, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Applications are accepted year-round. Applications taken prior to April 1 of a Tax Year will be processed for the current year. Applications taken after April 1 will be applied to the next Tax Year.

Failure to file within the allocated time for the homestead exemption constitutes a waiver of exemption for that tax year. Georgia law does not provide for extension of time for filing for whatever reason.

All exemptions, once approved, are automatically renewed each year until eligibility changes. Furthermore, the filing of a Chatham County homestead exemption would also apply to any future municipal property taxes and the associated municipal exemption.

There are several types of exemptions to see which exemption you may qualify for please follow this link to the Chatham County Board of Assessors website.
