Looking for a way to save on your taxes? You may be eligible for a Homestead Tax Exemption! This would provide relief from property taxes by exempting all or a portion of the valuation of a home from taxation. The percentage is based on the applicant’s income and their home valuation.

Who qualifies?

  • Seniors 65 and older
  • Disabled individuals
  • Veterans with 100% service-related disabilities or their widows

To apply, applications must be filed with the county assessor or register of deeds between February 1 and June 30 of each year. Current recipients receive applications by mail each year. If it’s your first time applying, applications can be found at the link above.

Ready to buy a home? This exemption will stay with a property until the end of the year – so check to see if the homes you’re interested in are tax exempt!
