Did you know you can get a property tax break in most every borough in Alaska if you are an active volunteer for Fire/EMS? Here is some information for those of us in the Kenai Peninsula Borough.
VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTER – EMS PROVIDE EXEMPTION: A resident who is an active volunteer providing firefighting or emergency medical services in the borough can receive an additional $10,000 exemption (maximum of 2 per household). This exemption must be applied for each year and is due by JANUARY 15TH. Renewal application forms are mailed to all previous filers in NOVEMBER of each year. The Fire Chief of the volunteer agency must verify the active status of each applicant.
