Lincoln County Treasurer Shawn Frehner has put out a press release from the Nevada Department of Health the Human Service, Aging and Disabilities Services Division.

The release states, “Some Nevada residents are eligible for a refund through the Senior Tax Assistance Rebate Program. This statewide program refunds a portion of the property tax paid by eligible senior citizens on their residence. The filing period to participate in the program ends Sept. 30, 2016.”

Frehner notes, to qualify a person must be at least 65 years old as of June 30, 2015. Your spouse may be of any age.

Household income for a single person cannot exceed $23,540 or $31,860 for a couple, with income adjusted based on the number of individuals living in the household.

You must have owned or lived in your residence for at least one year at the time of the application.

You must own only one property.

Your liquid assets and those of your spouse cannot exceed $150,000.

If an applicant’s residence has an assessed value of $500,000 or more, a credit report will be pulled to verify no mortgages exist on other properties.

Refunds will be a maximum of $500 and will be mailed by the end of 2016 to those who qualify.
