Application Based on Age

An application to receive the homestead exemption is filed with the property valuation administrator of the county in which the property is located.  If the application is based upon the age of the homeowner, the property owner can provide proof of their age by presenting a birth certificate, driver’s license, passport or other approved documentation.

Application Based on Disability

If the application is based on the disability of the homeowner, then the homeowner must have been classified as totally disabled under a program authorized or administered by an agency of the United States government or any retirement system located within or outside of Kentucky.

The homeowner must have been receiving payments pursuant to his or her disability for the entire assessment period.
