Homestead Notice December 1, 2014

*IMPORTANT PROPERTY TAX HOMESTEAD NOTICE*

This will affect the amount of property tax you pay in 2015, and it may affect your eligibility for a property tax refund.

Please contact your County Assessor's Office to file a homestead application on or before December 15, 2014 if one of the following applies:

  • You purchased a property in the past year and you, or a qualifying relative, occupy the property for homestead purposes on December 1, 2014; or
  • You or a qualifying relative occupy a property for homestead purposes on December 1, 2014 and the property was previously classified as non-homestead.

A qualifying relative for homestead purposes depends on the type of property.  For residential property, a qualifying relative can be a parent, stepparent, child, stepchild, grandparent, grandchild, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, nephew or niece of the owner.  This relationship may be by blood or by marriage.  For agricultural property, a qualifying relative can be a child, grandchild, sibling, or parent of the owner or of the spouse of the owner.

You must also contact the County Assessor by December 15, 2014 if you are the property owner, or a qualifying relative of the property owner, and the use of the property has changed during the past year.

If you should sell, move, or for any reason no longer qualify for the homestead classification, you are required to notify the County Assessor within 30 days of the change in homestead status.  Failure to notify the County Assessor within this 30 day period is punishable be recalculation of tax as non-homestead, in addition to a penalty equal to 100 percent of the homestead benefits.
