Why "exempt" in passive voice?

  • I've googled that "exempt" is not an irregular verb. So, it should be used as "exempted" in the sentence on the screenshot couse there's passive voice. Why does program use the 1st form?

    @игорь-1 "exempt" can be used not only as a verb ("to exempt somebody from something"), but also as an adjective ("to be exempt from charges", for example). In the sentence on the card, the word is probably used as an adjective. "exempt" can also be used as a noun, meaning the person or entity who is exempt from something, but from my experience this third version is rarely used.
