The deadline to apply for homestead exemptions is April 1.

For all homestead exemptions, you must own and occupy the property as your primary residence as of January 1 of the tax year for which application is being made. Property owners must not be receiving a homestead exemption on any other property, including properties in other Georgia counties or in other states. Married couples are considered by law as a single family unit; therefore, only one homestead exemption between husband and wife may be claimed. Also, all vehicles owned by the applicant and spouse must be registered in Gwinnett County. Other eligibility requirements for individual exemptions are listed below.

You do not have to apply again unless there is a change in ownership, name, or spelling correction on the deed, or if you seek to qualify for a different type of exemption. The same application is used to apply for all exemptions. If you are adding or deleting a person’s name on a deed, you may need to re-file for homestead. Refinancing your home will not affect your exemption.

If you reside within the city limits of Dacula, Grayson, Lawrenceville, Lilburn, Snellville or Sugar Hill, your application for a County exemption will also facilitate any applicable city exemption for which you may be entitled.
