Do you have a loved one in North Carolina struggling with property taxes? Well, some North Carolina homeowners qualify for one of three programs offering property tax relief. You might want to look into this for them.

Low-Income Homestead Exclusion

Qualified low-income homeowners can apply for property tax relief through the State of North Carolina at their Assessor’s Office between January 1 and June 1 each year. Qualifying homeowners receive an exclusion of the taxable value of their residences of either $29,500, or 50 percent (whichever is greater).

Disabled Veterans Homestead Exclusion

Honorably discharged veteran homeowners, certified by the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs or another federal agency as having a service-related permanent and 100 total disability also qualify for property tax relief. Plus, surviving, unmarried spouses of these veterans also qualify. The State of North Carolina excludes the first $45,000 of assessed value from property taxes in this situation. There is absolutely no age or income requirement for this tax relief.

Property Tax Deferral for Disabled or Elderly Homeowners

If disabled or elderly residents in the state have income that doesn’t exceed 150 percent of the income eligibility limit for Homestead Exclusion, this tax deferral is another option. They must apply and elect to defer the portion of their taxes every year. It doesn’t actually reduce the taxes owed, but it does postpone to due date. Some choose to postpone the due date until they sell their home down the line. Not every disabled or elderly homeowner will qualify though.
