Here is a link to the state DOR site that allows you to check by county. https://etax.dor.ga.gov/ptd/county/index.aspx

Remember you have to been the occupant of the property on January 1st of this year in order to receive this benefit in 2011. All counties require you to file the exemption by the 1st of April. Happy house hunting!

Gilmer County does. See below from Tax Assessor's Website.

"School Tax Exemption for individuals 65 or older: Any individual 65 and older may qualify for a school tax exemption. You must file for the exemption prior to April 1st to receive the exemption for the current tax year"

I know that Cherokee County, Cobb, Paulding, Hall and DeKalb and Glynn all have Senior Citizen exemptions for over age 62. This relieves you of paying any of the School taxes and is a huge reduction on your tax bill. There may be more counties which I can research for you but do not want to misquote on all the counties.

You can add Gilmer county to that list also, I had heard that only three counties in the state offered that exemption, it would be nice to be made aware of all the counties with that exemption as it would help greatly when searching for homes to buy and for those selling.
