002.01 Average assessed value of single-family residential property means the average assessed value for all single-family residential properties in the county for the year for which the exemption is requested.
002.02 Change in status means a change in: the name of the owner-occupant of the homestead; place of residence; marital status; veteran status; rating by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs; disability status; or any other change that would affect the qualification for or type of exemption granted, except the income status determined by the State Tax Commissioner.
002.03 Closely related means the relationship of a brother, sister, child, or parent to another owner-occupant of a homestead.
002.04 Exempt amount is the amount of the property value that may be exempt from the property tax. The exempt amount depends upon the basis of the exemption and the county of residence. The exempt amount shall be the lesser of the taxable value of the homestead or the following amount:
002.04A For a qualified claimant, the larger of one hundred percent of the average assessed value of a single-family residential property in the claimant’s county, or forty thousand dollars.

002.06B Household income includes the income of any additional owner-occupants who occupied the homestead during any part of the taxable year immediately prior to the year the exemption is claimed. The holder of a remainder interest under a life estate is not an owner.

002.13C(1) Substantially contributed means the grant of any amount of money received from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs under Public Law 85-857 adopted September 2, 1958, as amended, and in effect on January 1, 1979, by a veteran for the acquisition or construction of a specially adapted home, or the adaptation of an existing home.

002.15A An applicant residing in a nursing home may qualify for a homestead exemption if he or she intends to return to the residence, the household furnishings have not been removed, and the home has not been rented or leased. Placing the homestead property on the real estate market does not disqualify the applicant until the property is sold.
002.16 Single-family residential property means all real property with dwellings designed for occupancy by one family or duplexes designed for occupancy by two families.
002.17 Veteran shall mean a person who has been on active duty, for other than training purposes, in the armed forces of the U.S., or a citizen of the U.S. who served with the military forces of a government allied with the U.S. and, who has received an honorable or general (under honorable conditions) discharge or the equivalent.

REG-45-003 EXTENT OF HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION
003.01 A homestead exemption may be granted not to exceed the exempt amount determined for the county, as adjusted by the following provisions:
003.01A The percentage of the exempt amount allowed for a homestead exemption, after any reductions required because of the maximum value of the homestead, shall be determined based on the amount of household income. The Tax Commissioner shall publish tables showing the percentage of the exempt amount allowed for each level of income. The Tax Commissioner shall annually adjust the income amounts for inflation according to the method described in Internal Revenue Code section 151.
003.01B The exempt amount allowed for a homestead exemption shall be reduced when the assessed value of the homestead exceeds the maximum value. The exempt amount shall be reduced by ten percent for each two thousand five hundred dollars of assessed value of the homestead above the maximum value. Any homestead valued twenty thousand dollars or more above the maximum value is not eligible for any homestead exemption.
003.02 The county assessor shall determine and certify to the Department of Revenue the average assessed value of a single-family residential property in the county not later than September 1 each year. The county assessor shall also report to the Department of Revenue the computed exempt amount per Reg. 45-002.04A and B.

REG-45-004 CLAIM FOR HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION
004.01 To claim a homestead exemption, the claimant must file the Nebraska Homestead Exemption Application or Certification of Status, Form 458, with any required schedules and attachments, after February 1 and on or before June 30 with the county assessor of the county wherein the homestead is located. The Form 458, with any required schedules and attachments, must be filed each year. Failure to timely file the properly completed application shall constitute a waiver of the exemption for that year.
004.01A The county board of equalization may grant an extension for filing from June 30 up to, but not beyond, July 20, upon written request of a claimant. The request for extension may not be granted if a request for extension for the same claimant was granted for the prior year.
004.02 The application shall be signed by the person claiming the exemption who is owner-occupant of the homestead. However, if the claimant is incompetent, a guardian or conservator may sign the application; or, if the claimant is unable to apply for a homestead exemption and has given a written power of attorney for that purpose, the attorney-in-fact may sign the application if a copy of the power of attorney is attached to the application.
004.03 If an owner-occupant who is qualified for a homestead exemption dies after January 1 and before June 30, the personal representative may sign and file the application on or before June 30 of that year if the surviving spouse of the owner as of January 1 continues to occupy the homestead. This application will be effective for that year only.
004.03A If a change in ownership, other than that caused by the death of the owner, or a change in the residency occurs between January 1 and August 16, the exemption will be rejected for that year, unless the new owner-claimant qualifies for a transfer under Reg-45-013. If such change occurs after August 15, the exemption will continue for that year only.
004.04 A Nebraska Schedule I—Income Statement must be filed with the Form 458 each year except for claimants described in 004.06B.
004.04A If the claimant was married, the income of the spouse may be included jointly with the income of the claimant, or reported on a separate Income Statement. The income of the spouse must be included whether or not the spouse was an owner or an occupant of the homestead.
004.04B A separate Income Statement must be filed for the income of any additional individuals who were owners of the homestead on January 1 and who occupied the homestead during any part of the taxable year immediately prior to the year the exemption is claimed.
004.05 Additional information must be submitted with the Form 458, for the following categories of exemption the first year an exemption is requested or if the exemption was not approved in either of the two prior years:
004.05A For purposes of an exemption claimed as a qualified disabled individual, the applicant shall file with the application a certification from a qualified medical physician, physician’s assistant, or advanced practitioner registered nurse, on a form prescribed by the Nebraska Department of Revenue affirming the status of the claimant.
004.05B For purposes of all military related exemptions, other than those described in 004.06, the applicant shall file with the exemption application a certification from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs affirming the status of the claimant.
004.06 The following additional information must be submitted with the Form 458, each year an exemption is requested for the following categories of exemption:
004.06A A qualified veteran totally disabled due to a non-service-connected accident or illness shall file a certification from a qualified medical physician, physician’s assistant, or advanced practitioner registered nurse, on a form prescribed by the Nebraska Department of Revenue affirming the status of the claimant. A disabled veteran may substitute a certification from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs affirming total disability.
004.06B For purposes of an exemption claimed on a home substantially contributed to by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, the applicant shall file with the exemption application a certification from the United States Department of Veterans’ Affairs affirming the contribution to the homestead property. Once this certification is submitted and the application approved, it is not necessary to renew the certification with subsequent annual filings. A copy of the original certification shall be attached to subsequent annual applications, Forms 458. An income statement is not required to be submitted with Form 458.
004.07 More than one qualified owner-occupant of the same residence may file an application for a homestead exemption. Failure of the other qualified owner-occupants to file will result in a loss of the exemption if the primary single claimant dies, transfers his or her ownership, or moves prior to August 16. A married couple may apply for two homestead exemptions provided each spouse meets the ownership criteria and each occupies a separate residence. The household income of each spouse must be added together to determine qualification.
004.08 If the claimant provides incorrect information or fails to notify the county assessor of a change in status and this results in an unlawful granting or continuation of a homestead exemption, the tax that would have been due, together with penalty and interest, shall become a lien on the property when entered upon the books of the county treasurer. Any person who has permitted an unlawful allowance of a homestead exemption shall forfeit his or her right to a homestead exemption on any other property located in this state for the two succeeding years.
004.09 When an application is disapproved, it shall be the duty of the applicant to refile a new timely application and a new disability certification (except for qualified claimants as defined in REG-45-002.10), for any subsequent year. For audit purposes, the county assessor shall retain a copy of all applications and certifications.
(Section 77-3509.01 through 77-3512, 77-3515, 77-3517, 77-3522 and 77-3527, R.R.S. 2003, sections 77-3508, 77-3509, 77-3519, 77-3520, 77-3526 and 77-3527, R.S. Supp., 2006 and sections 77-3504, 77-3510, 77-3513 and 77-3514, R.S. Supp., 2007.)

REG-45-005 PROCESSING OF HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION APPLICATION
005.01 The county assessor shall examine all homestead exemption applications and shall determine if all qualifications for exemption have been met, except for the income standard. If all qualifications for exemption have been met, except the income standard, the county assessor shall approve, sign the form, and forward the appropriate copy of the Form 458 with all required attachments to the Tax Commissioner by August 1.
005.02 If the assessor finds that any application should be disapproved by reason of its failure to conform to law, including the failure to timely file as set out in Reg-45-004.01 and Reg-45-004.04, he or she shall mark it disapproved and state thereon the reason for such disapproval. Disapproved applications shall not be forwarded to the Tax Commissioner. When the county assessor disapproves any exemption for any reason written notice of the action shall be mailed to the applicant at the address shown on the exemption application or certification of status. The notice shall be mailed no later than July 31, except in cases of a change in ownership or occupancy from January 1 through August 15, or other cases when the homestead exemption should not be granted, in which case the notice shall be sent within a reasonable time. The notice shall be on forms prescribed by the Tax Commissioner.
005.02A If the date on a deed shows a transfer from the claimant to another person prior to August 16, the assessor shall disapprove the application. If the claimant has information to show the transfer did not occur on the date shown on the deed, the claimant may present the information to the county board upon appeal.
005.03 Within thirty days from receipt of such rejection notice, the applicant may file a written complaint with the county clerk to obtain a hearing before the county board of equalization. The complaint shall specify the grievances and the pertinent facts in ordinary language. The applicant may appeal the finding of the board in the same manner as appeals on questions of valuation of property.
005.03A If a homestead exemption is denied because of the value of the homestead, the claimant cannot protest the value of the homestead through an appeal of rejection of homestead exemption. All appeals of the valuation of the homestead must be appealed through the valuation appeals process (see the Property Assessment and Taxation regulations for appealing property valuations).
005.04 The Tax Commissioner shall examine the exemption applications received from the county assessor for the purpose of determining if the applicants meet the required income standards. The Tax Commissioner shall certify to the county assessor of each county those claimants who qualify or fail to qualify for that year by November 1.
005.04A The Tax Commissioner may review, or the claimant may request a review of, the income information of the claimant. The review is limited to the income information of the claimant. The result of the review may be to increase or decrease the amount of the homestead exemption allowed, allow a homestead exemption previously denied, or deny a homestead exemption previously granted.
005.04B Any review of income information and any action taken by the Tax Commissioner shall be completed within three years after December 31 of the year the exemption was claimed.
005.05 In any case where the Tax Commissioner disapproves or reduces an exemption application, written notice of the action shall be mailed to the applicant. An applicant whose exemption is disapproved or reduced by the Tax Commissioner may obtain a hearing before the Tax Commissioner by filing a written protest with the Tax Commissioner within thirty days of receipt of the notice of disapproval or reduction. The petition shall state the amount in controversy, issues involved, name and address of the applicant, and the relief demanded. The hearing shall be conducted in accordance with the Administrative Procedures Act.
005.06 No claimant shall be allowed more than one homestead exemption per year. The homestead exemption to be allowed is that homestead exemption which gives the highest exemption. If an application for homestead exemption is disapproved and the applicant would qualify for any other exemption, the disapproved application shall be treated as an application for the next highest homestead exemption for which the applicant is qualified.
005.07 For purposes of this regulation, a reduction in the amount of homestead exemption shall be considered a disapproval.
005.08 When a disapproved application is treated as an application for the next highest homestead exemption for which the applicant is qualified, the county assessor shall notify the applicant of any additional statements or information needed to complete the application. The county assessor shall accept such additional statements or information for a reasonable time after such notification.
005.09 The homestead exemption application, the income statement, and any other attachments to the application are confidential and available only to tax officials. Unauthorized disclosure of information may result in civil or criminal penalties.
(Sections 77-3516, 77-3517, 77-3521, 77-3529, R.R.S. 2003, sections 77-3519 and 77-3526, R.S. Supp., 2006, and sections 77-3514, R.S. Supp., 2007.)

008.01 The county assessor shall summarize taxes as specified in section 77-3523 that would have been collected on the exempt portions of the qualifying homesteads; sign the certificate; and, forward the certificate to the county treasurer, who shall forward the certificate to the Department of Revenue on or before November 30 of each year. Until May 30 of the next succeeding year, the county assessor and county treasurer may amend the current certificate to show any change in the tax that was lost due to allowed homestead exemptions for the preceding year. The county treasurer shall amend the certificate after May 1 of the next succeeding year if the Tax Commissioner has amended the homestead exemption allowed to any claimant because of the income requirements pursuant to Regulations 45-005.04A and 45-005.04B. All corrections decreasing the tax loss shall be reported to the Tax Commissioner for reconciliation. Corrections increasing the tax loss for any reason other than the income criteria will not be allowed after the May 30 deadline; however, reimbursement may be sought from the State Claims Board.

REG-45-013 HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION TRANSFER
013.01 The owner of a homestead which has been granted an exemption provided in sections 77-3507 to 77-3509 may transfer the exemption to a newly acquired homestead within the state, if the new homestead was acquired between January 1 and August 16 of the year for which the exemption was claimed; and,
013.01A The claimant transfers ownership of the original homestead during the same time period; and,
013.01B The claimant occupies the new homestead on or before August 15 of that year.
013.02 The claimant must file a timely application on the original homestead and then must file an application for transfer with the county assessor of the county where the new homestead is located, on or before August 15 of that year. The transfer must be approved by the county assessor using the same criteria as previously applied to the original homestead, except the January through August 15 occupancy requirement. If the transfer is approved, the exemption, as applied to the original homestead, shall be disallowed for such year.
013.03 For intercounty transfers, a copy of the approved request for transfer shall be sent to the county assessor of the county where the former homestead was located and another copy shall be sent to the Department of Revenue.
013.04 For intracounty transfers, the Department of Revenue will process all applications received without regard to the transfer provisions. For the year during which the transfer occurred, the approved roster certified by the Tax Commissioner will contain the legal description of the original homestead as provided on the application.
013.05 The time of transfer is determined by the date the seller signs the deed or land contract. Upon appeal, a claimant may prove through documentation that title did not pass until after August 15 rather than the date stated on the deed.
013.06 A claimant who has transferred ownership of the homestead and mistakenly or inadvertently failed to retain a life estate or other interest in the property may execute a corrective deed correcting the original transfer. If the county assessor has sent a disapproval notice, the claimant may appeal within 30 days, and upon filing the corrective deed, the claim for exemption shall be allowed.
013.07 When a mobile home transfers from one county to another county the claimant must timely file an application in the original county. The claimant then must file an application for transfer with the county assessor of the county where the mobile home has been moved on or before August 15 of that year.
