Applications for Property Tax Exemptions Due July 1

July 1, 2013 is the due date for exemption applications for the Homeowner’s, Homes of Totally Disabled Veterans, Properties of Persons Affected by Hansen’s Disease and Properties of Persons who are Blind, Deaf and/or Totally Disabled programs.


If you feel that any of these programs apply to you, applications must be submitted by that July 1, 2013 deadline for the Homeowner Exemption to be effective January 1, 2014 while all the other programs mentioned are effective immediately.

If you are already enrolled in these programs you need not apply again as they renew automatically. However, if your address, personal status or other qualifying circumstance changes you must inform us in 30 days after that change as these are personal exemptions and do not run with the parcel they are applied to.

You may visit our Real Property Tax Offices in Hilo or Kona, or access the website at to download an application or for further information.
