Property taxes provide funds for schools, roads, and many other important aspects of our community. However, that doesn’t mean you should be paying more than you have to. If you’re a veteran, disabled, over 65, or under certain income thresholds, you may qualify for a property tax exemption. Here are some other ways to lower your taxes.
Your primary residence may qualify for a homestead exemption, which will lower your home’s assessed value for tax purposes. This will reduce how much you owe in property taxes.
If your property value seems higher than it should be on your property tax assessment, you can file an appeal. If you’re successful, your property will be adjusted to a lower level and how much you owe will be adjusted accordingly. However, this method could backfire if your home is found to be worth more than originally estimated.
Renovations & Energy Incentives
If you have an older home or historic home, you may qualify for tax breaks for repairs or improvements. This is based on a home-by-home basis and you may need to submit an application before your work begins. You can also look at improvements that make your home more energy efficient.; such improvements may qualify for tax breaks.
