Homestead Exemption for Senior Citizens (Circuit Breaker)

The Nebraska Homestead Exemption for Seniors is a property tax relief program that reduces a portion of taxes for homeowners in Nebraska who occupy a home, used as their primary residence, from January 1 through August 15. The Nebraska Department of Revenue sets the annual income and value limits in early February of each year. The income limits are on a sliding scale.


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
  • For 100% relief, have income less than $34,900.99 (if single), and income less than $41,000.00 (if married). Please refer to the income table below for reduced relief at higher income levels.
