Residential Property Tax Relief Programs
Tax reductions for residential property are a common means for states to ease the tax burden on homeowners and renters. Many states have multiple programs, with different levels of benefit available depending on the age, veteran status, and other characteristics of the taxpayer. The most common form of relief is a deduction from assessed value before the property tax rate is applied. Some states also provide tax reductions that are tied to income. The user may narrow the query by selecting applicant eligibility criteria, type of benefit, and whether there is an income ceiling.
