Apply for $7000 Homeowner’s Exemption
The Assessor's Office estimates that nearly 400,000 homeowners are still eligible but fail to take advantage of these savings. This exemption can be especially beneficial to low-income homeowners and people on fixed incomes.
While $70 may seem inconsequential to some, over a 10-year period, it amounts to $700 – roughly the price of a new water heater. The Assessor also warns residents against fraudsters who offer to file an exemption for a fee. There is no filing fee and no need to re-apply once qualified and Assessor Prang’s office is happy to help homeowners with the process.
