If you (or anyone you know) is at least 65 years old OR permanently and totally disabled, then that person (assuming they're a homeowner) can qualify for the modified, expanded Ohio Homestead Exemption. By applying for this Ohio Homestead Exemption (application form here) and submitting it to your County Auditor's Office, you can receive a 25% reduction (credit) on your property tax bill!
This is not your Father's Homestead exemption where you probably wouldn't have qualified based on some income limits that they had set. This new and revised exemption is available to ALL Ohio homeowners 65 and older or permanently and totally disabled.
To find out more and read all the FAQ's, follow this link to the Ohio Dept of Taxation web site. My point is this: Even if YOU would not qualify based on your age, tell your parents, aunts/uncles, friends at church, ANYBODY who is over 65 so they might save a few hundred dollars this year!
