    For anyone who can use the help

    I found this out when I homesteaded property I had recently purchased
    When I told the property tax office I was disabled they gave me 2 forms to have filled out by doctors
    They could be 2 doctors from the same office they don't care
    Once you turn them back in they reduce your property taxes by 50% starting that year at least that is what it is in Alabama

    You do not have to prove your are on SSI or SSD The forms easy and quick and did the trick
    It is worth a try

    Thanks for the reply and the info

    I know that every state is different. Maybe somehow I can put together a list of states and we can help some :)

    If anyone has any additional info please post.

    I just applied in ct. Had to bring in my ssd award letter. If my memory serves me right they take off $1000 of tha assessed value. So if your house is assesed at 75,000 you will pay taxes on 74,000. I wont be spending that in one place cuz you caint buy nothin for that little amount of money. I applied anyway. Every little bit helps.
