DID YOU PURCHASE A HOME IN 2020? A Friendly Reminder from Your Go-2-Girl-4 Real Estate.
If you bought a home in 2020- it’s time to file your homestead exemption!
I hope you have been enjoying your new home! It is time to remind you to be sure and mail in your Homestead Exemption form in order to receive a discount on your property taxes. You will normally receive a form from your local County taxing authority in the mail between January and the end of March. You have until April 30th to file this exemption. Should you receive a request from any service or person other than the County where you reside asking for a fee to file the document for you, please disregard it. Please be aware that filing your Homestead Exemption is FREE through your local taxing district.
FILING IS FREE!!!
