Age/Disability Exemption The Homestead Exemption (based on age or disability status) allows taxpayers who are at least 65 years of age or who are totally disabled to receive an exemption. The following requirements must be met in order to claim the homestead exemption: 1. The taxpayer must both own and maintain the property as his or her personal residence as of January 1st; 2. The taxpayer must have been classified as totally disabled under a program authorized or administered by an agency of the United States government, the Railroad Retirement System or any retirement system either within or outside the state of Kentucky on January 1st for the year in which the application is made and maintain the disability classification through December 31st; 3. The taxpayer must be receiving disability payments pursuant to that disability classification; and 4. An application for the disability exemption must be made on an annual basis. Note: The most common government agency under which a taxpayer can obtain a totally disabled classification is Social Security/SSI. Other programs include the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Veterans Administration and the Teacher's Retirement System. Not included, however, is Worker's Compensation due to the fact that this program is authorized and administered by the State of Kentucky, not the federal government. How to Apply An application must be completed and filed in the property valuation office along with documentation verifying age. Appropriate documentation might include Medicare cards issued by the Social Security Administration, birth certificates, and driver's license. When applying for the disability homestead exemption, the same form will apply. However, documentation verifying total disability and that payments have been issued throughout the entire year must follow. Because of this, a taxpayer needs to provide proof of his or her disability status in the month of December.
