Property Tax Exemptions Deadline!

Property Tax Exemptions Deadline!

The Property Tax Exemption Deadline in Indiana is Approaching! Are You Entitled to a Property Tax Exemption?   Did you buy a home or refinance your mortgage this year?  If so, The Romanski Group of Keller Williams Realty, wants to remind you to file your property tax exemptions by the end of the year!  If exemptions aren’t filed or confirmed by December 31, 2015, your taxes could go up substantially.   There are two main property tax exemptions that most homeowners may qualify for:  Homestead & Mortgage.  There are several other property tax exemptions that may be available to you as well.   1 – Homestead Exemption The homestead exemption simply means you are living in the home as your primary residence and it is not a rental house, vacation house, etc.  This is by far the most valuable deduction and can save you up to 50% on your property tax bill.  The homestead deduction is now filed for you in most counties at closing through the sales disclosure, but this is a great time to verify with the county that it is indeed recorded. 2 – Mortgage Exemption The second common deduction is the mortgage exemption.  This deduction is available to homeowners who have a mortgage attached to their property.     Nobody likes paying a dime extra in taxes. Yet when it comes to property tax bills, some homeowners pay too much simply because they aren’t aware they qualify for an exemption.  Deductions are not given automatically, you must apply for them in the Auditor’s office.
