POMEROY — Applications for the homestead tax exemption program are currently being accepted in the Meigs County Auditors office located in the Courthouse.
Any homeowner who is or will be 65 years of age in 2013 or older or those who are permanently disabled regardless of income may apply. The deadline for applying will be June 3, 2013.
The exemption which takes the form of a tax credit on property tax bills, allows qualifying homeowners of real estate and manufactured homes to exempt $25,000 of the market value of their homes from property taxes.
Those who are currently on the program do not need to reapply, according to the auditor.
Application forms are available in the auditor’s office or may be accessed on-line at www.meigscountyauditor.org. Residents may also request an application be mailed to them by calling 740-992-2698.
