Deadline extended for tax exemptions

CLAREMORE —

Rogers County Assessor Scott Marsh is extending the deadline to May 31 for residents to file tax exemption due to the move to the new building.
Citizens may have experienced a decreased ability to file paperwork during the move, so in an effort to better serve the public the deadline is being extended, according to Marsh.
Rogers County offers three residential tax exemptions — Homestead, Senior Freeze Property Valuation Limitation and Double Homestead.
A reduction of $1,000 of the assessed valuation is available under the Homestead Exemption.
To qualify: the homeowner must reside in the property on Jan. 1, be an Oklahoma resident and the deed to the property must be executed on or before that date as well as filed with the Rogers County Clerk prior to Feb. 1 of the same year.
An additional or double homestead exemption is available for homeowners that have a gross household income that does not exceed $20,000 annually.
Proof of household income is necessary to receive the Double Homestead exemption.
Another common exemption is the Senior Freeze Property Valuation.
Senior citizens ages 65 and over with a gross household income of 60,400 or less qualify for this exemption.
Seniors will need to present proof of income, for example social security, retirement, pension, VA benefits or interest income to qualify. The Rogers County Assessor’s Office is open Monday thru Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
More information is available online at rogerscounty.org or by calling the office direct at (918) 923-4795.
