Alaska seniors age 65 and older can receive a tax exemption on the first $150,000 of the value of their home, thanks to the state-mandated Senior and Disabled Veterans Property Tax Exemption.
Different municipalities around the state have different deadlines to apply. Some communities offer more generous exemptions. To qualify, all applicants must have turned 65 on or before Dec. 31, 2021, and must own and occupy the exempted property as their primary residence.
Note: Some communities require in-person application for first-time applicants, so be sure to confirm and allow time for the visit, if needed.
