The Nebraska Department of Revenue, Property Assessment Division (DOR), reminds property owners that the Nebraska Homestead Exemption Application, Form 458, must be filed with their county assessor on or before June 30, 2022.
The homestead exemption provides relief from property taxes by exempting all or a portion of the taxable value of the residence. The State of Nebraska reimburses counties and other governmental subdivisions for the property taxes lost due to homestead exemptions.
In Nebraska, a homestead exemption is available to the following categories of property owners:
• Persons age 65 or older before January 1, 2022;
• Individuals with certain qualifying disabilities;
• Certain veterans with qualifying disability statuses and their surviving spouses; or
• Individuals with developmental disabilities.
Some categories are subject to household income limitations and residence valuation requirements. The income limitations are on a sliding scale. Some categories require certifications from a medical provider, the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, or the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. Please confirm what is required to be filed with your homestead exemption application.
