General Information

Your nonprofit organization may be eligible for a full or partial property tax exemption depending upon how the property is used.


Eligibility

A wide range of nonprofits may qualify for a full or partial exemption, including charitable organizations, hospitals, educational institutions, houses of worship, religious organizations, parsonages, historical societies, libraries, public playgrounds, cemeteries, veterans groups, and more.

To receive a tax exemption, the property’s legal title must be in the name of a nonprofit organization and the applicant must be the owner of the property. Federal 501(c)(3) status alone does not automatically qualify you for the exemption.

Visit the Eligibility page and use our eligibility tool to see if you qualify, then submit the Not-For-Profit Organization's Tax Exemption Application to apply.
