Marietta tax-exemption filing deadline is April 1


Marietta residents are reminded to file their applications for homestead and school tax exemptions by April 1 to affect their taxes for this year.

Also, city residents are reminded that they do not need to file each year unless they have moved, according to the city.

For homestead exemptions, homeowners can apply for a $4,000 exemption off the assessed value of their home, regardless of their age or income, as long as the home is owner-occupied by Jan. 1.

Elderly and disabled homesteaders who are 62 years of age or older and/or totally disabled, are entitled to an additional exemption of $2,000 off the assessed value of their home if it is owner-occupied and the income of all family members living in the home, excluding certain income as provided by law, does not exceed $5,000 a year.

This exemption, if totally disabled, will be granted only with a written statement from a licensed physician.

For the school tax exemption, homesteaders, who are 62 years of age or older, are entitled to that exemption provided a home is owner-occupied and the property does not exceed one acre.

To receive school tax benefits an affidavit provided by the Tax Department must be filed.

The Marietta Tax Division is on the first floor of City Hall, 205 Lawrence St., Marietta.

Note that all property returns are filed with the Tax Assessor but all Cobb County homestead exemptions are filed with the Tax Commissioner.

Information: 24/7 automated information at 770-794-5130 or www.mariettaga.gov/381/Tax-Division.
