** Beginning with the 2023 Assessment year, claimants aged 65 years or older may claim a Homestead Exemption in addition to the Homestead Credit. Please contact the Assessor's office for further information.
Iowa law provides for a number of exemptions and credits, including homestead credit and military exemption. It is the property owner's responsibility to apply for these as provided by law. If the property you were occupying as a homestead is sold, or if you cease to use the property as a homestead, you are required to report this to the Assessor in whose jurisdiction the property is located.
