Marion County Disabled Persons and Disabled Veterans Exemptions Mailed

January 27, 2017

Marion County Supervisor of Assessments Mark Miller has announced that the 2017 Disabled Persons’ and the Disabled Veterans’ renewal forms were mailed on Wednesday.

Disabled Persons’ Homestead Exemption provides a $2,000 reduction in a property’s Equalized Assessed Valuation to a qualifying property owned and occupied by a disabled person. A disabled person must file an annual application by the county’s due date to continue to receive the exemption. If you have not signed up, you may do so at the Supervisor of Assessments office.

The Disabled Veterans’ Standard Homestead Exemption provides a reduction in a property’s EAV to a qualifying property owned and occupied by a veteran with a service-connected disability certified by the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs.

A $2,500 homestead exemption is available to a veteran with a service-connected disability of at least 30-percent but less than 50-percent. A $5,000 exemption is available to a veteran with a service-connected disability of at least 50-percent but less than 70-percent. If a veteran has a service-connected disability of 70-percent or more, then the property is exempt from taxation for homes with an equalized assessed value of less than $250,000.

If you have not received your forms within the next few weeks, you may obtain them by coming to Room 101 at the Marion County Courthouse, or by contacting the Supervisor of Assessments office at 548-3853.

First time applicants must apply in person at the Supervisor of Assessments office.
