Nebraska Program Overview

Property Tax-Aide features the Homestead Exemption for Senior Citizens (Circuit Breaker) in Nebraska. Exemptions are also available using the same application form for veterans, disabled individuals and veterans, including paraplegic or multiple amputee veterans, and those with developmental disabilities.

Homestead Exemption for Senior Citizens (Circuit Breaker)

The Homestead Exemption for Seniors provides relief of a percent of property taxes. The percentage of exemptions relates to the assessed of the homestead. The maximum exempt amount is the taxable value of the homestead up to $40,000 or 100% of the county’s average assessed value of single-family residential property, whichever is greater.


To qualify for a Homestead Exemption for persons over 65, an individual must:
  • Be 65 or older before January 1 of the application year;
  • Own and occupy a homestead continuously from January 1 through August 15; and
  • Have household income less than $48,601 for single applicants, or $57,701 for married, closely related, or widowed applicants.

Homeowners must file Form 458 and Form 458 Schedule I-Income Statement with your county assessor after February 1 and on or before June 30. For prior year applicants the assessor will send pre-printed application to homeowner. This must be returned before June 30.
