PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Elderly and disabled South Dakota residents have until Friday to apply for property tax relief.

The state’s Department of Revenue is reminding homeowners to submit their application by the deadline in order to receive assistance through South Dakota’s Assessment Freeze for the Elderly and Disabled Program.

Under the program, a homeowner’s property assessment can be prevented from increasing for tax purposes. Therefore, if the actual value of the home increases, the homeowner would still pay property taxes on the former value.

Individuals must meet a number of requirements to participate in the assessment freeze program. The requirements include being at least 65 years old or disabled as defined by the Social Security Act and having an income of less than $27,423.54 for a single-member household.

Applications can be found on the department’s website.
