Homeowner Exemption — the Homeowner Exemption provides tax relief by reducing the equalized assess valuation of an eligible residence.
Returning Veterans’ Exemption – Veterans returning from active duty in armed conflict are eligible to receive a $5,000 reduction in the equalized assessed value of their property only for each taxable year in which they return.
