Homestead Exemption Deadline Approaching

Those turn­ing 65 years old this year, have only until Mon­day, June 1 to apply for the Ohio home­stead exemp­tion reduc­tion. In addi­tion, if you are a new appli­cant, who owns or occu­pies a home, and will turn 65 in 2015, or if you become per­manantly dis­abled, you will be sub­ject to an income test to ver­ify your qual­i­fi­ca­tion for the pro­gram. The Bryan Times reports that those who wish to apply and did not qual­ify for the exemp­tion in 2014 must have a total income less than $31,000, and “Total income” is defined as the adjusted gross income for Ohio income tax pur­poses of the owner and owner’s spouse for the year pre­ced­ing the pre­vi­ous year. For more infor­ma­tion about qual­i­fi­ca­tions, or to obtain an appli­ca­tion, visit the Williams County Auditor’s Office on the sec­ond floor of the Williams County Cour­t­house or call 419–636-5639. Appli­ca­tions can also be down­loaded from the auditor’s web­site, www.co.williams.oh.us/auditor.
