- Dog Licenses: All dogs in the county must be licensed once they
are six months old. Dog licenses are good for one year, from July 1, 2016 until June 30, 2017. The fee ranges from $3.00-$6.00 per dog depending on the district where you live.
- Homestead Exemption: Persons 65 years or older as of June 30, 2015
or those persons totally disabled can apply for Homestead Exemption. This allows
a $20,000 reduction on the real estate assessed value. It does not affect personal
property. You may apply for the Homestead Exemption from July 1, 2016 through December
