Filing for Exemption

To qualify for the exemption, fill out the form entitled "Application for Exemption Under the Homestead Disability Amendment," which is posted on the Kentucky Department of Revenue website. File the form with your county's property valuation administrator and with the Department of Revenue. The department adjusts the homestead exemption amount every two years to account for cost of living increases, as determined by the Department of Labor. Other restrictions for qualifying exist, but they are generally bureaucratic in nature.
