Senior Citizen & Disabled Person Exemptions

You may qualify for an exemption from all or part of the property tax on your residence if you meet ALL of the following qualifications:
  • You are at least 61 years of age OR permanently disabled (unable to pursue an occupation).
  • You own AND occupy a house or mobile home.
  • You and your spouse or co-tenant(s) have a combined disposable (gross, not taxable) income including social security benefits of $35,000 or less.

The exemption varies depending on your income. If you think you may qualify, bring verification of your prior year’s income into the Stevens County Assessors office and file an application. If you have questions or are unable to come into the office please call for information. Failure to re-apply yearly or report a status change may result in denial of the exemption.

Senior Citizens/Disabled Persons Deferral: Those who qualify for the Senior Citizens/Disable Persons property tax exemption may also defer property taxes and special assessments on up to 80% of the equity of their home.
