Tax Relief for the Elderly & Disabled

2021 Tax Relief forms will be available by March 1, 2021.  Click here to email and request a form be mailed to you when they are available.   Please include your full name and address in the email. 

On December 15, 2020, the Board of Supervisors requested staff to review the household income criteria for the Tax Relief Program for the Elderly and Disabled for Real Property.   Any change approved by the Board would require an ordinance amendment and would become effective for Tax Year 2022.

Real Property Tax Exemption: Elderly & Disabled

Qualified applicants may be exempt from paying real property taxes on their home and lot, up to three acres.  Land in excess of three acres and any additional lots or structures are ineligible for relief.  Manufactured homes (mobile homes) may qualify for tax relief.

Personal Property Alternative Tax Rate: Elderly & Disabled

Each qualified applicant is taxed at the alternative tax rate on one vehicle.  The alternative rate is set annually by the Board of Supervisors and has historically been $2.10, which is 50% of the regular personal property tax rate. 

Tax Relief must be requested by filing a form annually with the Commissioner of the Revenue.  Loudoun County utilizes a triennial application procedure.  First-time applicants must file an application and provide supporting documentation, such as social security statements, bank statements and income tax returns.  The same is required every three years.  For the two years following each application year, a one page certification must be filed. 

Filing deadlines for 2021 tax year applications and certifications are:

  • April 1, 2021 for all applicants who filed previously
  • September 1, 2021 for first-time personal property tax relief
  • January 3, 2022 for first-time real property tax relief
