All property owners over age 65 are eligible for a senior homestead exemption that will increase their base exemption from $30,000 to $50,000.
This exemption applies to the Fulton County portion of property taxes. All homeowners age 65 or over qualify for this homestead exemption, regardless of income, unlike other senior homestead exemptions which have income limits. How to Apply: The senior homestead exemption will be applied automatically to properties that already have senior property exemptions for age 65+. Seniors who do not have other senior homestead exemptions should either visit one of the five offices of the Fulton County Board of Assessors with proof of age (such as drivers’ license) or apply online by uploading their drivers’ license or other proof of their age.
