Marion County 2013 Homestead Renewal Forms and Senior Assessment Freeze Forms in the Mail

By Will Doolin, WJBD News

Marion County Supervisor of Assessments Patty Brough has announced that the 2013 homestead renewal forms and senior assessment freeze forms are in the mail.  

Senior citizens who are 65 years of age or older in 2013 and are owners of record, responsible for paying property taxes and who occupy the property as their principle residence are eligible for the senior homestead exemption regardless of income.  Brough says that is a $4,000 reduction in assessed value.  Senior citizens with a total household income of $55,000 or less are also eligible for the senior homestead freeze exemption.

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.  If you have not signed up, you can do so at the Supervisor of Assessments office.  First time applicants must apply in person in the office.
