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.
Senior Citizen Exemption
- You must be an owner of record (have your name on title) as of January 1 of the calendar year you are seeking the exemption. Property cannot be in a business name (LLC, partnership or corporation etc.)
- 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
This exemption must be applied for by a deadline enacted at the local level, typically in March. Please consult your municipality for the exact deadline.
First time filers need to provide proof of age. Acceptable documents are:
- Current Alaska Driver’s License
- Alaska State ID
- Military ID
- Birth Certificate
- Trust Document (if applicable)
- Please check with your municipality if they accept additional documents not listed here.
For more information about the Senior Exemption or how to apply, please refer to the Alaska Property Tax Jurisdictions to locate the contact information of your municipality.
