This article is a reminder to all our readers who bought a home in 2008 and have not filed for their property tax exemptions. Be sure to file for any exemptions that you are entitled to and please remember that the second half of the property tax payment is due by November 10th, 2008.

Property Tax Exemptions

December 31, 2008 is the deadline to file your property tax exemptions for 2008 taxes payable in 2009.

To be eligible for these deductions in 2009, persons must be the owner of their primary residence as of December 31, 2008. If you purchased your property or refinanced your Mortgage by December 31, 2008, you have until December 31, 2008 to file. If you have previously filed an exemption on your property, you would only need to refile if you have moved or refinanced.

To ensure that you are not paying higher taxes than you should for next year, be sure to file for any exemptions that you are entitled.
