Homeowners age 65 or older are eligible to apply for a Homestead Exemption.

Under the provisions of the Homestead Amendment, a person or persons must be 65 years of age or older or totally disabled during the year for which application is made, and must own, occupy and maintain a residential unit for such exemption.

A person or persons owning, living in and maintaining a residential unit must meet the 65 years of age requirement. If only one spouse is 65, the age requirement is met.

The Exemption amount for 2016 is $36,900.  That amount is subtracted from the property assessment before taxes are calculated for the property.
