Universal Citation: AK Stat § 38.05.098 (2021)

(a) The real property occupied as a permanent place of abode by a resident 65 years of age or over and leased by that resident from the state in accordance with AS 38.05.070 - 38.05.105 is exempt from the payment of annual lease rent. Only one exemption may be granted for the same property, and, if two or more persons are eligible for an exemption for the same property the parties shall decide between or among themselves which shall receive the benefit of the exemption. An exemption may not be granted for a portion of the leased real property which is used for a purpose other than as the permanent place of abode of the leaseholder.

(b) An exemption may not be granted under this section unless a written application for the exemption on a form provided for by the commissioner is submitted. The leaseholder must submit the application not later than 60 days before the anniversary date of the lease, and shall file a separate application for each lease year for which the exemption is sought. If an application is submitted within the required time and is approved by the commissioner, the commissioner shall allow a rental exemption for the lease year commencing on the anniversary date. The commissioner may at any time require proof of the right to an exemption claimed under this section.
