Tax exemption paperwork due July 1
County property tax exemption application due date for the homeowner’s, totally disabled veterans, persons affected by Hansen’s Disease, and persons who are blind, deaf and/or totally disabled programs is Monday, July 1.
If you feel that any of these programs apply to you, applications must be submitted by the July 1 deadline for the homeowner exemption to be effective Jan. 1, 2014. All other program exemptions are effective immediately.
If you are already enrolled in these programs you need not apply again as they renew automatically. However, if your address, personal status or other qualifying circumstance changes you must inform the county’s Real Property Tax Office within 30 days after the change as these are personal exemptions and do not run with the parcel they are applied to.
Visit our Real Property Tax Offices in Hilo or Kona, or www.hawaiipropertytax.com for an application or more information.
