SSDI and property taxes - Alabama
In my state, Alabama, if someone is on SSDI and owns a house where they get a homestead exemption, the homeowner qualifies to have their property taxes reduced to zero. Yes, zero. Between October 1 and December 31, take the SSDI Award Letter and a letter from your doctor stating that you are 100% disabled to the tax assessors office, and they will give you a form to complete.
Every state has different laws, I believe Florida only allows property tax deductions to those confined to a wheelchair, and other states probably have their own unique rules and application dates. It is definitely worth checking out. Wish I had known this when I first received my award letter, because I wouldn't have had to pay any 2007 property tax. (I missed the filing date deadline.) But, I'm happy to know the exemption will apply to my 2008 taxes due next year, and to all future years.
