Exemptions:

HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION

Code of Alabama 1975,

40-9-19 through 40-9-21.1

 

A homestead exemption is a tax break a property owner may be entitled to if he or she owns a single-family residence and occupies it as his/her primary residence on October 1 of the tax year for which the property owner is applying. A homestead exemption must be claimed, exemptions are not automatic. If any change is made to your deed, you may need to re-claim your homestead exemption.

If you are sixty-five years or older, you are entitled to an exemption from State property taxes. If you are sixty-five years or older or you are retired due to total and permanent disability, you may also be entitled to additional exemptions based on your income. For more information, please contact the Tax Assessor's Office at (256)532-3350.

Additional exemptions are available to homeowners over age 65 or who are totally and permanently disabled. Must be eligible on October 1 and claimed no later than December 31 and will apply to the following year’s taxes.

Contact the Tax Assessor’s office in the Madison County Courthouse, Room 121 or telephone 256 532-3350 or email taxassess@madisoncountyal.gov.
