York County Assessor’s office offering mobile offices to help with homestead exemption applications

YORK COUNTY – The York County Assessor’s office will be out and about, providing assistance for those filing homestead exemption applications.

York County Assessor Kurt Bulgrin said his office “is gearing up for a busy April. For the first time, we will be conducting mobile offices across the county for individuals who would like assistance with filing a homestead exemption application.”

The dates, times and locations of the mobile offices are:

  • Benedict Community Center – Thursday, April 11, from 9 a.m. until noon
  • McCool Junction Community Hall – Thursday, April 18 from 9 a.m. until noon
  • Henderson City Hall – Thursday, April 25 from 9 a.m. until noon
  • Waco Fire Department – Thursday, May 2 from 9 a.m. until noon
  • Bradshaw Village Board Room – Thursday, May 16 from 9 a.m. until noon
  • Gresham Village Office – Wednesday, May 22 from 9 a.m. until noon

“If you cannot make it to a mobile office, you can always come to the York County Assessor’s Office on the first floor of the courthouse, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.,” Bulgrin says. “Please remember to bring any income information you may need, including your recent federal and state tax returns, medical expenses and social security information. Due to changes in state law last year, veterans who received a 100% exemption last year do not need to apply this year; however, their spouses will need to apply this year to receive the homestead exemption. Homestead exemption applications are due to the assessor’s office on or before June 30, 2024.”

Bulgrin also wanted to note personal property returns are due to the assessor’s office on or before May 1.

“Any returns received or postmarked after this date will be subject to at 10% penalty of the tax due,” Bulgrin reminds taxpayers. “Returns received or postmarked after July 1 will be subject to a 25% penalty of taxes due. State law does not allow for the waiver of penalties. Individuals can always stop by the York County Assessor’s office for assistance with filing their personal property return.

“For any other questions about homestead exemptions and qualification requirements, personal property, or any other function of the York County Assessor’s office, please call us at 402-362-4926 and follow the prompts. You may also reach us by email at kbulgrin@yorkcountyne.gov.”
