Exemption and Special Assessment Application Fees

Reductions in the department’s funding over the years have deteriorated our ability to review accounts with long-standing exemptions and use assessments for continued compliance.   In a continued effort to ensure that each taxpayer is responsible for their appropriate share of the tax burden, Lane County will begin charging a non-refundable $100 processing fee per exemption application by new entities and for new locations as well as all special assessment applications effective July 1, 2015.  Veterans’ exemptions are excluded from this charge.

This fee will cover only a small portion of the associated costs.
