**UPDATED**

Tax Year 2015 Homestead Exemption

The Nebraska Department of Revenue, Property Assessment Division (Department), reminds property owners that the Nebraska Homestead Exemption Application or Certification, Form 458, must be filed with their county assessor on or before June 30, 2015.

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 groups:

  • Persons over the age of 65;
     
  • Qualified disabled individuals; and
     
  • Qualified disabled veterans and their widow(er)s.

Some categories are subject to household income limitations and residence valuation requirements. The income limitations are on a sliding scale.

With the recent decision issued by the Supreme Court of the United States in Obergefell v. Hodges, please review your Form 458 to ensure that you have used the proper filing status and to determine whether you may now qualify for a homestead exemption.

Homestead exemption forms and information are available at revenue.nebraska.gov/PAD/homestead.html.

For more information on the homestead exemption program, please contact your county assessor’s office, or the Department at 888-475-5101.
