NOTICE OF THE OCTOBER 2ND DEADLINE
FOR HOME EXEMPTION CLAIMS
AND OTHER REAL PROPERTY TAX RELIEF PROGRAMS
WITHIN THE CITY AND COUNTY OF HONOLULU
NOTICE TO OWNER-OCCUPIED HOMEOWNERS WITHIN THE CITY AND COUNTY OF HONOLULU – Revised Ordinances of Honolulu (ROH) Section 8-10.3. The City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Budget and Fiscal Services, Real Property Assessment Division (RPAD) would like to inform all owner-occupied homeowners who have yet to file their one-time home exemption claim to do so by October 2, 2023. Because September 30, 2023 falls on a Saturday, the exemption filing deadline is extended to the next business day.
The exemption amount to reduce their assessed value is $120,000 for those under the age of 65 and $160,000 for those aged 65 and over.
All homeowners who occupy their home are urged to apply for this exemption. Since the exemption amount increases as the claimant reaches the age of 65, the eldest approved applicant, by default, will be granted the exemption as the claimant. Other approved applicants will serve as back up claimants should the granted claimant be deemed no longer eligible for the exemption.
This exemption and other tax relief exemption programs include total disabled veterans, persons with sight and hearing impairment, persons with Hansen’s disease, and total disabled persons may file their claim by October 2, 2023 deadline to be in effect beginning in the tax year of July 1, 2024 – June 30, 2025.
Homeowners may visit www.realpropertyhonolulu.com to download an application form (BFS-RPA-E-8-10.3) or to submit their home exemption claim online. Additional tax relief programs and general real property tax information can also be found on this website.
The public may call (808) 768-3799, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit either real property assessment office in Honolulu or Kapolei with any question they may have. Exemption claims cannot be submitted via email or facsimile.
