Alaska Program Overview

Property Tax-Aide features the Alaska Senior Citizen Exemption.

A qualified homeowner aged 65 or older does not need to file an application for successive tax years if there is no change in ownership, in residency or permanent place of abode, or other factors affecting qualification for the exemption. This means you only need to apply once.

The information on this page is updated as new information becomes available by the relevant tax agencies.

This is an exemption of up to $150,000 of the assessed value of an owner-occupied home.

  • You must own and occupy the property as your primary residence and permanent place of abode on or before January 1 of the calendar year you are seeking the exemption.
  • You must be at least 65 prior to January 1 of the tax year you are seeking the exemption
