Property used exclusively for a church, college, cemetery,
museum, school or library may qualify for an exemption that
will reduce the owner’s property tax liability. Properties owned
and used exclusively by a non-profit religious, charitable,
scientific, or hospital corporation may also be eligible.
The cemetery exemption is available for real and/or personal property which is used or held exclusively for the burial or other permanent deposit of human dead or for the care and maintenance of the property or the dead, except when used or held for profit.
