Additional Homestead Exemption
If you are head of household and qualify for homestead exemption, you may also qualify for additional homestead. You may receive an additional $1,000 assessment exemption if the gross household income from all sources did not exceed $20,000 for the past calendar year.
You may file for additional homestead between January 1 and March 15 or within thirty (30) days from and after receipt by the taxpayer of notice of valuation increase, whichever is later. There is a simple form on income that you will fill out as part of your application. Click here to download. If you are 65 or older as of March 15 of the filing period and presently qualify for additional homestead, you will not have to renew the additional homestead annually. However, it will be the responsibility of the taxpayer to notify the Assessor’s office if your income exceeds $20,000.
