KY Dept. of Revenue sets 2023-2024 Homestead Exemption

From Jill Midkiff

Frankfort, KY - The Kentucky Department of Revenue (DOR) has set the maximum homestead exemption at $46,350 for the 2023 and 2024 tax periods. By statute, the amount of the homestead exemption is recalculated every two years to adjust for inflation. The 2023-2024 exemption reflects a $5,850 increase over the 2021-2022 exemption of $40,500.

To qualify for the homestead exemption, a person must be at least 65 years old during the tax period or classified as totally disabled by any public or private retirement system. The property must also be owned, occupied and maintained as the taxpayer's personal residence on the January 1 assessment date to be eligible for this exemption.

Call for ISP host parents

For more information, contact ISP at isp@lindsey.edu.

By Landon Simmons

With the end of the semester rapidly approaching, the LWC International Student Program (ISP) is excitedly preparing to greet a new cohort of students for the upcoming Spring semester!

The college currently has 140+ students enrolled representing 44 different countries, and ISP is expecting over 40 more students to join next semester--dozens of which will have the opportunity to be matched with families as part of our Host Family Program.

ISP is fortunate enough to partner with families from the local community who are willing to host and befriend these students during the school year. Host families DO NOT provide housing for the students. Instead, host families provide friendship and a support system here in America to make the transition to and time in the U.S. a little bit easier. ISP is currently asking for new families to join the program and help create a friendly, comforting, home-away-from-home atmosphere here at LWC for each international student.
