I am planning to move to Kingsland/St.Mary upon the selling of my home in Florida. I have heard so many different stories on the Homesteading Exemptions that are available to me in Camden County. I am 60 years old, and am Disabled. Can anyone set the story straight? Thanks...

HOMESTEAD EXEMPTIONS The deadline for filing for a homestead exemption in Camden County is March 1. Application for homestead exemption
is made with the Board of Tax Assessors in the county. Failure to apply by the deadline will result in loss of the exemption for that year.
This section describes special local homestead exemptions that apply only in this county. Statewide homestead exemptions are also available and may
provide more tax relief depending upon the taxpayer's circumstances. The following local homestead exemptions are offered in this county:
Code Exemption Type County
State Age Other Net
Elderly 25,000 25,000 62 (1)
Regular 4,000 4,000 4,000 4,000 (1)
(1) This exemption can be combined with other exemptions a taxpayer may qualify for.
Homestead Valuation Freeze Exemption This county has enacted a homestead valuation freeze exemption. This exemption will freeze the
valuation of property at the base year valuation for as long as the homeowner owns and resides on the property. (SB497, and 496, 2006)

Above is taken from
Georgia Department of Revenue

ooh, I LIKE the freezing of the base evaluation of the property for as long as the owner has it and plan on checking with my county to see if WE have something like that in effect.

Seems like Mccarley really knows his/her stuff!.

Each county is different but one thing I found in OUR county -- which may or may not be pertinent: disabled exemption are granted only on those HOUSEHOLDS under a certain income. So, even if a disabled person has ZIPPO income, if their HOUSEHOLD income is above a certain amount, they don't qualify, again that is for OUR county, but thought I'd just toss that out. If **I** had known that it would have saved me a trip to the tax accessors office.
