PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE APPLICATION PERIOD FOR THE

HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION REDUCTION

IS CURRENTLY CLOSED

If you missed the 2014 deadline, you may still claim the credit for the missed tax year, but must wait until the 2015 application period to apply. Simply file a late application on the same property that you file a timely application for the 2015 tax year. Qualified applicants may have the entire tax savings either applied to the second half tax bill due in June, OR receive a refund in the form of a check later in the year, depending on individual circumstances.

APPLICATIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE DURING THE 2015 APPLICATION PERIOD

JANUARY 6 THROUGH JUNE 1, 2015

To qualify for the 2015 (pay 2016) tax year, an applicant must:

√  Own and occupy the residence as of January 1, 2015,

AND

√  Turn 65 years of age, or older, by December 31, 2015, OR

Be totally and permanently disabled as certified by a physician as of January 1, 2015, OR

√  Be the surviving spouse of a person who was receiving the homestead  exemption at the time of death and where the surviving spouse was 59–64 years of age on the date of death,

AND

√  Have an income (for both the applicant and applicant’s spouse) that does not exceed the amount set by law, which is adjusted annually for inflation. “Total income” is defined as the adjusted gross income for Ohio income tax purposes. The limit for the 2014 application period was $30,500.
