If you are permanently & totally disabled or if you are over the age of 65, you may qualify to have a portion of your tax bill reduced. In order to receive an exemption, you must own the home as of January 1st of the calendar year and it must be your primary residence. In addition, your total household income cannot exceed $42,000 and your assets cannot exceed $85,000 (the value of your home is not included in this total).
If you are a veteran (or surviving spouse of a veteran) who has a 100% service-connected disability through the Veterans Administration, you may also qualify for an exemption. Applications can be found on our webpage: www.wisecounty.org/227/Forms-Applications
