Spread the Word: Tax Relief for the Elderly and Disabled

The following may be of help to our elderly and disabled neighbors who may need tax relief assistance. Share if you know someone who meets these qualifications.

The city’s Department of Finance is still accepting applications for the Tax Relief for the Elderly and Disabled Program. The program opened on January 8, 2018 and the application deadline is April 2, 2018.

The tax relief program provides assistance to Richmond’s qualifying elderly and disabled homeowners through their real estate taxes. Citizens who participate in the program have their annual real estate tax bills reduced by 30% and 100%, depending upon their household income. Citizens must own and reside in their home, be 65 or older or permanently and totally disabled, earn less than $50,000 annually and have assets (net worth) of less than $200,000. Taxpayers must provide proof of income and assets. A list of necessary documents can be found on the application.

Applications are located on the City of Richmond website, at city libraries and from the city’s Finance Department payment locations. Assistance in completing applications or re-certifications is also being offered throughout the city. Perspective applicants and existing participants may visit the following locations for any help that may be needed:
