Homestead exemption for property owners at hand

Property owners over age 65 may qualify for an extra ad valorem tax discount on their homesteads, but they must register for it per Alabama law. To make it easier for residents to understand their required actions for claiming this exemption, Revenue Commissioner Sharon Barkley will be going to the Demopolis and Linden Senior Centers to talk about homestead exemptions.

On Tuesday, Sept. 26 at 11 a.m. Barkley will be in Demopolis at the West Alabama Senior Center and on Wednesday, Sept. 27 at 11:30 a.m. Barkley will be at the Meals for Elderly Building in Linden. Those who have never applied for the exemption before are encouraged to attend. Inquiries and concerns are directed to the Revenue Commissioner’s Office at 334-295-2214.
