How to Apply for Homestead Exemptions
Homestead applications must be filed with the county assessor after February 1, and on or before June 30 of each year. Current homestead recipients will receive an application by mail. New applicants can get Homestead Exemption applications by contacting the Douglas County Assessor’s Office at (402) 444-7060.
VAS volunteers assist the Assessor’s Office by staffing remote sites throughout the county during the filing period. Call VAS at (402) 444-6617 after February 1 to schedule an appointment if you would like assistance with your homestead application.
