    Taxonomy Code: DT-8700.6500-600

    Programs that provide information and guidance regarding property tax relief programs that grant partial or complete exemptions from property taxes for homeowners who are experiencing severe financial hardship. Exemptions are a reduction in the assessed value of a home by a specified amount and corresponding reductions in property taxes. Some forms of relief, known as "circuit-breaker" programs, offer exemptions that phase out as income increases. Many exemption programs have specified eligibility criteria, e.g., older adults, people with disabilities, widows, veterans and disabled veterans who have a permanent service-connected disability of a specified percent. In some cases, people who qualify must also meet income guidelines. In others, income is not a factor.
