Kauai County officials are reminding eligible property owners to take advantage of the opportunity for the low-income home tax exemption.
Households with a gross annual income of $60,200 or less are eligible for the additional exemption for tax year 2012. The previous income ceiling for the exemption was $40,000.
The deadline to file for this exemption is Sept. 30.
“We encourage homeowners that qualify for the additional home exemption to apply by the deadline. It offers significant savings to needy households,” county Finance Director Wallace Rezentes Jr. said in a news release. “For the tax year 2012, an additional 547 low-income property owners became eligible for this exemption, but not all of them have submitted an application yet.”
