MARIETTA – The City of Marietta tax books are open for receiving Homestead and School Tax Exemptions for City residents year-round.  However, you must file your application by April 1 to affect the taxes for the current year.  You do not need to file each year, only if you have moved.

Homestead Exemption: A homesteader 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 January 1.

Homestead Exemption for the Elderly and Disabled:  A homesteader, who is 62 years of age or older and/or totally disabled, is entitled to an additional exemption of $2,000 off the assessed value of their home provided the home is owner-occupied and the income of all members of the family living in the home, excluding certain income as provided by law, does not exceed $5,000 per annum.

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

School Tax Exemption:  A homesteader, who is 62 years of age or older, is entitled to a school tax exemption provided a home is owner-occupied and property does not exceed one (1) acre.

To receive School Tax benefits, an affidavit provided by the Tax Department must be filed.

FILING DEADLINE FOR CURRENT YEAR – APRIL 1, 2017

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

Note:   All property returns are filed with the Tax Assessor.  All Cobb County Homestead Exemptions are filed with the Tax Commissioner.
