Do I have to apply for the Elderly or Disabled exclusion every year?
No, once the application has been approved, the owner does not need to file an application in subsequent years unless there is:
1. a physical change to the property
2. a change in the use of the property
3. a change in the qualification or eligibility of the taxpayer.

The assessor must annually review at least one-eighth of the exempted or excluded parcels in the county to verify that those parcels continue to qualify.
EXCEPTION: Circuit Breaker Tax Deferment requires that an application be filed annually.
