Ohio Homestead Exemption
The new expanded homestead exemption provides additional property tax relief to qualified senior citizens and permanently and totally disabled Ohioans.
The new exemption offers eligible homeowners, regardless of income, the opportunity to shield up to $25,000 of the market value of their homestead (a dwelling and up to one acre of land) from property taxation. For example, if a home is valued at $100,000, the property tax will generally be billed as if the home were valued at $75,000.
Forms are available at the local auditor’s office or by contacting the Ohio Department of Taxation at 800-282-1780. The application is also available on both of their websites which are listed to the lower right on this page under Links of Interest.
Seniors are urged to take advantage of this tax break.
