By State law, certain taxpayers are allowed exemptions from their property tax bills. These exemptions are allowed to those who are qualified primarily from among the elderly, veterans, the blind, widows and widowers, and the minor children of deceased parents. In order to receive the exemption, however, they must apply at their local Assessors office. As long as the applicant meets all the requirements laid out by the law, the Assessors must grant the exemption.
