Ohio senior citizens and the disabled can get some relief with their real estate property or manufactured home taxes.
Ohio homeowners who are 65 or totally and permanently disabled, live in their home as their primary residence may qualify. Homestead Exemption reduces the value of the homestead property by $25,000 and then taxes are collected.
Eligible homeowners may apply for the exemption at their local county auditor's office.
In Huron County, residents can obtain a form from the office of Roland Tkach, Huron County Auditor, 12 E. Main St., Suite 300, Norwalk, Ohio 44857. Citizens can also call the auditor's office at (419) 668-8464 and a form will be maild to them. A form is also available on tax.ohio.org. Any homeowner who is receiving the Homestead Exemption from Huron County does not need to re-apply this year.
