The deadline for elderly and disabled South Dakotas to apply for property tax relief is nearing.
The state's Department of Revenue is reminding homeowners that they have until April 1 to submit an application.
Under a state program, a homeowner's property assessment can be prevented from increasing for tax purposes. Therefore, if the actual value of the home increases, the homeowner would still pay property taxes on the former value.
Individuals must meet a number of requirements to participate in the assessment freeze program. The requirements include being at least 65 years old or disabled as defined by the Social Security Act and having an income of less than $26,570 for a single-member household.
Applications can be found on the department's website. They must be submitted to the county treasurer.
