Homestead exemptions provide relief from property taxes by exempting all or a portion of the valuation of a home from taxation. The State of Nebraska reimburses the counties and governmental subdivisions for taxes lost due to homestead exemptions. The percentage of relief is based on the applicant’s income level and home valuation.
VAS will be having two informational workshops about Homestead Exemption in 2023.
Both workshops will take place at Metropolitan Community College’s Digital Express at the North Omaha Campus (5300 N30th St, Building 10; Omaha, NE). Please call VAS at 402-444-6617 for more information.
Dates and times:
- February 9 from 1:00pm to 2:00pm
- April 6 from 6:30pm-7:30pm
