Taxpayers 65 years and older as of January 1, who have owned and occupied their property as their primary residence for at least 10 consecutive years, may qualify for the Senior Property Tax Exemption.
The exemption reduces the actual taxable value of a qualified residential property by 50 percent of the first $200,000 of taxable value. Once approved, the exemption remains in place until there is a change in ownership.
An applicant or married couple can apply for the exemption on only one property. That property must be his or her primary residence. Married couples and individuals who apply for the exemption on multiple properties will be denied the exemption on all properties.
To apply for the Senior Property Tax Exemption or to see if you qualify, visit www.douglas.co.us/assessor/exemptions/senior-property-tax-exemption/. Applications will be accepted until July 1.
