The senior property tax exemption has been reinstated for property tax year 2012, payable for taxes due in 2013.
For those who qualify, 50 percent of the first $200,000 in actual value of the primary residence is exempted from property tax. Once an exemption application is filed and approved by the assessor, the exemption remains in effect until a disqualifying event occurs. For new applicants, the exemption application must be submitted to the assessor by July 16, 2012.
