Homestead Tax Exemption: Due Today

Jon Real Estate Leave a Comment

Homestead Tax Exemption filing is due today.  If you purchased a home in 2010, you need to do this now.  If you purchased a home prior to 2010 but have never filed for this exemption, you need to do this now.  This is not an April Fools Day joke, it’s an opportunity to save some serious cheddar on your property tax bill.

How do you file for the exemption?  Find out, by County:
