What is the Homestead Exemption Reduction?
In general, senior citizens, disabled persons, and surviving spouses are eligible to reduce the market value of their home, condo or mobile home by $25,000. Based on the district’s current effective tax rate of 27.55 mills plus the bonds of 5.70 mills, the tax reduction is worth $291.00 per year for residents who currently do not receive the discount.
The math works like this: $25,000 x 35% = $8,750 assessed value. $8,750 x 0.03325 (27.55 + 5.70 converted into mills) = $290.94 per year.
Please contact the Wood County Auditor's Office at 1 Courthouse Square, Bowling Green, Ohio or 419-354-9173, to file a Homestead Exemption Application or for any further questions regarding savings eligibility.
