Exemptions are a form of partial property tax relief. Each exemption type is designed to provide tax relief for a specific class of property owners. Eligibility requirements vary for each type of exemption. The amount of tax relief may also vary with each exemption type and property. A property owner may be eligible for more than one exemption type.
In addition to the two senior citizen exemptions listed on this page, there are two additional tax relief programs available to senior citizens. Please see the special Senior Citizen Page on this web site for more information on those programs.
