Loudoun County Commissioner of the Revenue Robert S. Wertz Jr. has scheduled free information sessions to familiarize residents with the eligibility criteria for the county’s generous real estate tax relief program and new eligibility thresholds for 2019.
Loudoun County homeowners age 65 or older or with disabilities who are below established income and wealth limits may benefit from a reduction in the amount of property taxes they pay. Qualified applicants for real estate relief must have a gross combined income less than $72,000, and net worth less than $920,000. Up to $10,000 in income of a spouse or relative residing in the home is excluded from the income calculation. Program participants saved almost $8 million in real estate taxes in tax year 2018.
Find out about the county’s tax relief program and have your questions answered. No appointment or RSVP is required to attend these free sessions at the following locations. All sessions begin at 10:30 a.m.
Interested Loudouners may obtain an application online beginning February 25, 2019, at www.loudoun.gov/taxrelief. Residents may also call 703-737-8557 to have a form mailed to them or they may pick one up at the Commissioner’s offices in the Loudoun County Government Center, 1 Harrison Street, SE in Leesburg or the Loudoun Tech Center, 21641 Ridgetop Circle, Suite 100 in Sterling.
