Missouri does not exempt the property of disabled or senior citizens, but it has two programs for seniors and disabled persons with limited incomes that offer some property tax relief.
The Missouri Property Tax Credit (MO-PTC), senior citizens and disabled persons on limited incomes may qualify for refunds or income tax credits based upon property taxes paid or rent paid on their residences. The “rent“ includes money paid for a home, a room in a nursing home, an apartment, or a mobile home unit. This law provides the eligible taxpayer with indirect property tax relief, but many people are unaware that this assistance is available.
An applicant for credit under the Homestead Preservation Act cannot file for Missouri Property Tax Credit (MO-PTC) for the same tax period.
