Edmonson County Property Value Administrator (PVA) Kyle White has released the following legal notice to all Edmonson County property owners. White said all owners greatly benefit from staying informed about his office and the different options available to them.
"The most common question we have is about the Homestead and Disability Exemptions," said White. "The amount has increased for the 2019 tax year from $37,600 to $39,300. A taxpayer who qualifies can receive up to this deduction if they qualify for one of the exemptions. For homestead, you have to be age 65 anytime in 2019, own, and occupy the home. For disability, you have to be 100% disabled and currently receive benefits for the entire year of 2019, while owning and occupying the home. The full deduction equals around $360.00 in savings for the taxpayer."
