A Homestead Exemption provides relief from property taxes by exempting all, or a portion of, the valuation of the homestead from taxation. The State of Nebraska reimburses the counties and other governmental subdivisions for the taxes lost due to Homestead Exemptions.
A Homestead Exemption is available to three groups of people:
Group A: People Over Age 65
Group B: Certain Disabled Individuals
Group C: Certain Disabled Veterans and Their Widow(er)s
Homestead Exemption application and income statement forms are available in the County Assessor's Office after February 1, and are due on or before June 30 each year.
