Until further notice, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the wellbeing of the public and our staff, the Auditor office will be limiting office access.  We will be working 7:30a to 4:00p, Monday through Friday.   We ask that if you MUST visit the office in person we request you wear a mask or face covering.  Our preferred contact is by Email or phone (Contact Us) rather than an on-sight visit.  Jill Hall - Brown Co.

I'm 65 but my spouse is younger than I am. Are we eligible for the homestead exemption?

If one of the principal owners of the property is 65 (or disabled) and the home is that person's principal place of residence, the property is eligible for the Homestead Exemption. Ohio law anticipates many applicants may be in this situation, which is why an eligible owner's surviving spouse may continue to receive the Homestead Exemption if the eligible spouse dies and the spouse is at least 59 on the date of death.
