It’s that time of year and the deadline to file for Homestead Exemption is only a few days away! This could save you thousands of property tax dollars each year, just by filing one time. Remember: YOFO (You only file once) for your primary residence and investment rental properties do not qualify.
In order to file Homestead Exemption, you will need your settlement statement, your tax parcel id number, the recorded deed book and page number of your warranty deed (received in the mail from your closing attorney about 6 weeks after closing). Once you have gathered all of this information, you need to get the right forms from your county’s Tax Commissioner’s office. Make sure to contact them after filing and mailing in your information to confirm receipt and that’s it’s properly filed. It should only take a few days for them to receive your information and have it in the correct system.
