COMMON EXEMPTION FORMS:

Homestead Exemption
Mortgage Exemption
Over 65
Disabled Vet Exemption

When a new property is purchased, the existing exemptions will not be removed until the following year. For example, if property was purchased in 2017, the exemptions currently on the property will be reflected on the 2018 tax bills, but will be removed on the 2019 tax bills. It is the responsibility of the new owner, or buyer, to file for their new exemptions before the end of the year in which they purchased.

If there was a change in title in lieu of a death or divorce, new exemptions may or may not be required. Please contact the Auditor’s Office for complete details.

For information regarding circumstances different than the above listed, please contact our office or visit the Department of Local Government Finance website for requirements, eligibility, and other forms.
