    Norm, it looks like you are out of luck in Nevada unless you are blind or a disabled veteran:

    It doesn't have to be state relief neccessarily. The city I live in has an "Elderly and Disabled Tax relief program" it is sliding scale based on income. If income is low enough around $20,000. for one person 100% of tax is exempt then goes up from there.

    You may want to check localities for such programs...

    As far as the origin of such programs they were started for the elderly here. People would retire and find 15-20 years into retirement their property assessments had increased 200-300%. The city decided to cut people on fixed / limited incomes a break. ( otherwise for people with very low incomes they would have to move.. with property values high they could sell but still not afford to buy in the area because everything is expensive)

    Editied to add link showing how Norfolk , VA program works. Other cities in this area have similar programs.

    What's included in a state's annual property tax assessment?

    NORM,
    YOUR INFORMATION HAS BEEN A WELCOME EYE OPENER FOR MANY.
    THANK YOU.
    As long as this thread has taken on a life of its own, a direction off course from CAREGIVING, I might as well perpetuate it by asking clarification for the following;
    Typically, the term: annual real estate property tax refers to the aggregation of:
    - state tax
    - county tax
    - town tax
    - school district tax

    When reference is made to state property tax exemption, does it include all the above listed components?
    Thanks

    connecticut

    It looks like there is a tax relief program available in connecticut as well.

    According to the State of CT Office of Policy and Management.

    Program Description
    State law provides a property tax credit program for Connecticut owners in residence of real property, who are elderly (65 and over) or totally disabled, and whose annual incomes do not exceed certain limits. The credit amount is calculated by the local assessor and applied by the tax collector to the applicant's real property tax bill. The amount of the credit that may be granted is up to $1,250 for married couples and $1,000 for single persons. Credit amounts are based on a graduated income scale. Application may be made with the Assessor's Office between February 1 and May 15th.
    The Homeowner Question & Answer Booklet is available for this program. The municipal Claim Form (M-35b) is also available.
    For Further Information, Please Contact:

    From the Question and Answer Booklet, in the link above:

    18. Q. WHAT CONSTITUTES QUALIFYING INCOME FOR HOMEOWNERS SEEKING TAX RELIEF CREDIT?

    A. Owners' qualifying income must not exceed $27,700 for unmarried persons, and $33,900 for a married couple ............


    This Q and A booklet is 38 pages long, so obviously it is necessary to read through this carefully. Disability is defines by SSDI.

    I don't qualify due to joint income limits so I didn;t read it in its entirety, but wanted to post this info.

    There are also many towns in Connecticut that also offer tax relief to the elderly and disabled. The town exemptions have different income numbers.

    I found this information simple by googling "tax relief disabled" and my state or town name. Everyone should check out their own situation.
