Assessor’s Staff on Road Again

Tulsa County Assessor staff members will be taking to the road again as they go to various communities to take property tax exemption filings.
The two-day per week tour begins Jan. 24 in Skiatook. The final session will be March 2 in Tulsa.
Assessor Ken Yazel said people would be able to file for homestead exemption, double homestead exemption, senior property valuation limitation, veterans, agricultural renditions, business renditions, mobile home renditions and property tax refunds.
Anyone missing the opportunity to file at the various locations can come to the Assessor’s office on the second floor of the Tulsa County Courthouse, Yazel continued.
Homestead Exemption filers must apply by March 15 to qualify for 2007 or within 30 days of the issue date of an assessment notice, he said. People also must apply if the property has changed ownership during 2006 or they have not applied for homestead exemption. Deeds must have been notarized before Jan. 1 and filed in the County Clerk’s office by Feb. 1 to allow for the exemption during the current year.
Double Homestead Exemption filers must have a gross household income of $20,000 or less during the past year, Yazel said. To qualify, a person must file by March 15 or 30 days from the issue date of the assessment notice. Proof of income also must by provided for 2006 as all 1099 and W2 forms from all income sources. An annual filing is required for those under 65. Persons over 65 are not required to re-file or are disabled if all qualifications are met.
Senior Property Valuation Limitation filing applies to those 65 years old before Jan. 1, 2007 and has a gross income of $54,500 or less. Proof of income for 2006 is required.
An exemption for veterans dishonorably discharged from active service in any branch of the Armed Forces of the U.S. or Oklahoma National Guard certified by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to have a 100 percent permanent disability or be the surviving spouse of such head of household. The exemption is for the full amount of the fair cash value of the homestead property.
