Widows, widowers and individuals with disabilities who meet certain income thresholds may qualify for a property tax exemption on their primary residence within Pima County.

The application period runs from the first Monday in January until March 1.

“This exemption is really quite popular and provides some financial relief for folks out there who are dealing with challenges in their lives,” said Pima County Assessor Bill Staples.

Jennifer Walker, a senior advocate with the nonprofit Pima Council on Aging, advertises the program to 16,000 newsletter subscribers, noting just this month a client said the assistance helps her to stay in her house.

The application for the exemption must be filed in person the first time. Once qualified, the applicant is not required to file an annual affidavit unless there is a change to the original qualification requirement.

For both exemptions, applicants must have property with a full cash value that does not exceed $244,690, or an assessed value of $24,469.

For other criteria, please visit http://www.asr.pima.gov/links/exemptions.aspx or call 724- 7500.

Additionally, informational sessions for new and existing applicants will be held at library branches throughout the community.
