Property Tax Exemptions

Are you taking advantage of the property tax savings available through Exemptions?  Homeowners qualify for a General Homestead Exemption if the property is owner-occupied, no application is required.  This is a savings of 6,000 off of the assessed value each year and is reflected on your tax bill.

Exemptions are also available for:

  • Seniors who are 65 and older
  • Disabled Veterans - Please note: The Governor has signed into law new legislation significantly expanding the Disabled Veterans' Exemption.
  • Returning Veterans
  • Persons with Disabilities
  • Home Improvements

 

If you are not currently receiving any of these exemptions and think you may qualify, please review the Exemptions Page to find out more!
