To receive the 2 ½% tax reduction, you must:

(1) Own the home; and

The reduction applies to the home site and the home itself.  It does not apply to:

(1) Rental homes or apartments;

(2) Homes occupied by someone other than the owner;

(3) Homes owned by corporations, partnerships, associations or groups;

(4) Units within a building primarily for retail, commercial or other non-residential purposes;

(5) Manufactured or mobile homes purchased prior to 2000; and

Please check your tax bills to see if you are already receiving the reduction.  Applications may be picked up from and filed with the County Auditor’s office between January 1 and the first Monday in June each year.
