Camden County homeowners are entitled to a property tax exemption. A homestead exemption is available to property owners who own and occupy their residence as of January 1st of each taxable year.
This exemption is only granted on the primary residence and not more than five contiguous acres of land surrounding it.
Additionally, Camden County is one of many Georgia counties that offer a Homestead Valuation Freeze Exemption. When a person is first granted this exemption, the base or frozen value is set at the previous year’s taxable value. The base value shall only be adjusted if there are any changes to the residential structure or acreage. The Assessors Office is conducting a Homestead Exemption Audit for 2020. As a result of this audit, the homestead exemption values may change for some Camden County residents.
The deadline to apply for a 2020 Homestead Exemption is April 1, 2020. For more information, visit www.camdencountymaps.com or call the Assessors Office at 912-576-3241.
