Medina County Residents,
In 2007, the State of Ohio implemented a new program
called the Homestead Exemption.
If you are living in your own home and are 65 years or
older or are totally and permanently disabled, you are
eligible to receive reductions in the property tax bill
for your home. These reductions average between $330 and
$490 per year, regardless of income.
Eligible homeowners are able to shield $25,000 worth of
the market value of their home from local property
taxes. For example, the owner of a $100,000 home, who is
eligible for the Exemption, would be billed as if the
home is valued at $75,000.
Applications must be submitted by the first Monday in
June (June 3, 2013). You must have been living in your
home since January 1st of this year to qualify this
To be eligible you must complete the application form
which can be downloaded from
Please mail the form to my office at:
Medina County Auditor’s Office
Once you are accepted into the program you do NOT have
to reapply. The program is ongoing for as long as you
reside in that home! For more information, click on
Seniors in the column to the left of this and then click
on Homestead Exemption for qualifications.
