What is the Homestead Tax Exclusion?
Homestead Application requests are currently being accepted for the 2017-2018 School Tax Year (Effective July 1, 2017). The 2017-2018 Homestead Tax Exclusion Application must be received by the Delaware County Board of Assessments by March 1, 2017.
The Homestead Exclusion can only be claimed once, for a place of primary residence. This is the fixed place of abode where the owner intends to reside permanently, not temporarily; the place where a person makes their home, until something happens that the person adopts another home. You may be asked to provide proof that this property is your primary residence, such as your driver's license, your voter registration card, your personal income tax form or your local earned income tax form.
Taxpayers who have been previously approved for the Homestead Tax Exclusion, do not need to re-apply. If you have never been approved, recently purchased your home, or circumstances have changed that will qualify your residence to meet the eligibility requirements, please request an application by clicking the Homestead Application link above.

All application requests are submitted to the Delaware County Board of Assessment for preparation and distribution. Please note that the process may take at least 60-90 days to complete.
