Deadline Approaching for Tax Relief Applicants

Albemarle County offers real estate tax relief for certain elderly and permanently disabled persons. If you received tax relief last year, the renewal application filing deadline is April 1, 2016.  Though the deadline for first-time applicants is October 31, 2016, all applicants are encouraged to apply by April 1st, in time to determine eligibility prior to the June 5, 2016 tax bills.

The following criteria must be met to qualify for the real estate tax relief:

  • You must be the owner of record as of January 1, 2016, and
  • As of December 31, 2015, you must be either (a) at least 65 years of age and/or (b) certified as totally and permanently disabled, and
  • Your combined total income (from all sources) for 2015 must not exceed $69,452, and
  • The combined total net worth of all owners and their spouses must not exceed $200,000 as of December 31, 2015.

All applicants must provide documentation of each item of income and net worth with a completed application. First-time applicants must also provide proof of age and (if applicable) a certified copy of the death certificate of any deceased property co-owner. First-time disabled applicants under age 65 must provide medically-certified proof of disability. The application (found here) and required documentation must be filed with the Albemarle County Department of Finance by the respective due date.
