The Nebraska Homestead Exemption Program is a property tax relief program for three categories of homeowners:

  1. Persons over age 65;
  2. Certain disabled individuals; and
  3. Certain totally (100%) disabled veterans and their widow(er)s.

There are income requirements and home value requirements for all categories except for a disabled veteran whose home has been substantially contributed to by the Department of Veterans' Affairs (VA). The income limits are on a sliding scale.

The State of Nebraska reimburses counties and other governmental subdivisions for the reduction in tax due to homestead exemptions.

For this purpose, the definition of a veteran is a person who had been on active duty in the armed forces of the U.S., or a citizen of the U.S. at the time of service with military forces of a government allied with the U.S., during the following date ranges:

A veteran must have received an honorable discharge or general discharge under honorable conditions.
