Property Tax Exemptions

We are no longer accepting exemption requests for 2024.  We will being accepting exemption reqeusts for 2025 beginning January 2, 2025.

All properties are presumed to be taxable.  The Assessor’s Office is responsible for reviewing requests and making determinations for exemption from property taxes.

An organization’s tax-exempt status does not automatically make their property exempt from property taxes.

The Assessor’s Office is committed to:

  • Working with every property owner to resolve concerns regarding property tax exemptions.
  • Conducting thorough and objective review of exemption requests, biennial reports, and supporting documentation.
  • Making sure exemptions are authorized when they are warranted.

Commitments we need from you:

  • Communication with the Assessor’s Office by phone, email, or Ask the Assessor.
  • Provide complete documentation about the property and occupants.
  • Understand the timelines involved with the forms.
  • Contact us! We are here to answer your questions!
Please wait while we gather your results.
