Representatives Cera And Rogers Give Testimony On Bill To Expand Homestead Tax Exemption

 

State Representatives Jack Cera (D-Bellaire) and John Rogers (D- Mentor-On-The-Lake) provided sponsor testimony this week on House Bill 99, legislation that expands the eligibility for the Homestead Tax Exemption while also increasing the amount of the deduction.

The legislation as introduced would lower the property tax burden of retirees and disabled adults by reducing the taxable value of their home and therefore what they must pay in property taxes.  House Bill 99 also increases the eligibility for the tax deduction by increasing the means test threshold of eligibility from $32,800 a year to $60,000 for retired couples. Homeowners eligible for this tax exemption would see an average annual increase in savings from the current $498 per year to $597.
