Loudoun County, Va. (February 28, 2015) – Loudoun’s Commissioner of the Revenue, Robert S. Wertz Jr. has scheduled free information sessions during March to familiarize residents with the eligibility criteria for the county’s generous real estate tax relief program.
Loudoun County homeowners age 65 or older or with disabilities that are below established income and wealth limits may benefit from a reduction in the amount of property taxes they pay. Qualified applicants for real estate relief must have a gross combined income less than $72,000, and net worth less than $440,000. Up to $10,000 in income of a spouse or relative residing in the home is excluded from the income calculation. Additionally, net worth DOES NOT include the value of the home and land up to 10 acres. Program participants saved more than $8 million in real estate taxes in tax year 2014.
