Application Process for Property Tax Exemption


The applicant must specify the applicable exemption statute when filing a claim for exemption.


It is not the county assessor or Department of Revenue’s responsibility to determine under which statutory provision the applicant should apply.


The assessor shall determine property tax exemption eligibility based on the exemption statute specified by the applicant on the application.


The assessor shall return any application that is incomplete to the applicant for completion.


If the assessor returns an application for completion or clarification, the applicant must return the application to the assessor within 15 days of the date it was mailed to the applicant or by the filing deadline, whichever is later, for the assessor to accept the application as a timely filing.


Any application that is filed late must be accompanied by a late filing fee. If the applicant does not pay the late filing fee no exemption shall be allowed.


If the exemption is denied by the assessor, the late filing fee shall be refunded to the applicant.
