You may be qualified for the Homestead Exemption if you are at least 65 years of age on January 1 of the tax year in which you wish to claim the exemption and you and your spouse’s income did not exceed $30,200 for the year prior to which an application is made. You must own your primary residence, which could be a manufactured home, or condominium or townhome and be a legal resident of Iredell County.
You may also qualify if you are certified totally and permanently disabled by a licensed physician or governmental agency and you and your spouse's income did not exceed $30,200 for the year prior to which an application is made. You must own your primary residence, which could be a manufactured home, condominium or townhome and be a legal resident of Iredell County.
It includes your dwelling, the dwelling site (not to exceed 1 acre), and related improvements such as a garage, carport or storage building. The dwelling may be a single family residence, condominium, townhome or a manufactured home.
For this exemption, the qualifying homeowner may submit an application by mail or in person at the Tax Department: 135 E Water St, Room 100, Statesville, NC 28677.
Income is defined as all moneys received from every source other than gifts or inheritances from family members. Income also includes money received from social security, disability, retirement and rental income. For the year 2018, the income limit is $30,200. This threshold is adjusted annually for cost-of-living.
If you are required to file a Federal Income Tax return you must provide a copy of the 1st page of the return. For non-income tax filers, other proof of income is required. Proof of income must reflect income for the year immediately preceding the tax year for which an application is made. (For example, if an application is submitted for 2019, income for 2018 must be reported.)
