2013 Benevolent Retirement Homes for the Aged Exemption

One of the criteria for determining exemption of a benevolent retirement home is a valuation limitation.  Units valued at more than 130% of the average county residential unit may be taxable; those less than
130% of that value may be exempt.  The calculation to determine that limitation for 2013 is now available - 130% Calculation (PDF).

For additional information on determining the taxable status and valuation of benevolent retirement homes, please review Chapter 22 of the Wisconsin Property Assessment Manual(PDF).
