Your nonprofit organization may be eligible for a full or partial property tax exemption depending upon how the property is used.
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, the organization must be the owner of the property, and the property must be used for an exempt purpose. For a list of property types that may be eligible for the exemption, visit the Eligibility page
. Federal 501(c)(3) status alone does not automatically qualify you for the exemption.
The types of properties which may be eligible include properties that:
- are used for religious services
- are residential and owned by the religious organization to house the officiating clergy
- are residential and used as a school dormitory or hospital staff housing
- have classrooms for pre-school or higher levels of education
- provide hospital services or skilled nursing care
