Peachtree City’s Annual Senior Homestead Exemption Registration Underway

Forms for qualifying senior citizens to register for the 2018 Peachtree City Senior Homestead Exemption will be available at City Hall beginning Wednesday, January 2. Peachtree City residents must register each year for the exemption.

Qualifying PTC homeowners must be age 65 by January 1 of 2019 and must already have applied for the standard Homestead Exemption through the Fayette County Tax Commissioners Office. The household income, which must be less than $30,000, will be calculated on the Federal Adjusted Gross Income of the applicant and spouse.  The exemption is a flat rate of $5,000 per home, which would amount to about $34 savings in City property taxes under the city’s current millage rate. Qualifying seniors should bring proof of age and income (a copy of their 2018 tax returns) to City Hall, 151 Willowbend Road, in Peachtree City to file for the exemption.

The deadline to file for 2019 is 5:00 PM on Thursday, February 28, to meet the March 1 deadline imposed by state law. Because people may not have their taxes ready at that time, the City will continue to accept proof of income until Friday, April 12, 2017 (but only from those who filed their form by February 28).  Residents with questions may contact City Hall at 770-487-7657 or email info@peachtree-city.org.
