Important Homestead Exemption Information

On May 21, 2013, Act 2013-295 was signed into law by Governor Robert Bentley. This law pertains to homestead exemptions in the State of Alabama and focuses on the income requirement for taxpayers age 65 and older, as well as taxpayers who are retired due to permanent and total disability (unable to work).

  • Your age and income matter. If you are 65 or older and have a combined annual taxable income of less than $12,000 (taxpayer and spouse) on your 2011 federal income tax return, you’re eligible for a specific tax exemption on your residence. (If your taxable income was greater than $12,000, you still qualify for a partial exemption.)
  • Your disability matters. If you are retired due to total and permanent disability (unable to work), you’re eligible for a specific tax exemption on your residence. Under Act 2013-295, the income restriction enacted in 2012 has been removed for persons who are retired due to total and permanent disability.

If you are a taxpayer age 65 or over and you are requesting a homestead exemption, please bring your driver’s license (or other official identification with date of birth) and your most recent Federal and State income tax returns to the Revenue Commission office at the Courthouse or one of its satellite offices in Baileyton, Dodge City, or Hanceville.

If you are a taxpayer who is retired due to total and permanent disability (unable to work), please bring your proof of disability and official identification to the Revenue Commission office at the Courthouse or one of its satellite offices in Baileyton, Dodge City, or Hanceville.

Proof of disability may include documentation of disability income, such as your Medicare Card if you are younger than age 65 (SSI does not qualify) or private disability annuity. You may also submit two Alabama Department of Revenue Physician Affidavits, as long as one of the physicians is actively treating you directly related to your disability. 

Please note: these homestead exemptions must be re-certified every year.
 
You may visit the Revenue Commission at the Cullman County Courthouse or in one of its satellite offices in Baileyton, Dodge City, or Hanceville. If you have any questions, please contact the Cullman County Revenue Commission office at (256) 775-4776.
