By Vermont law, property owners whose homes meet the definition of a Vermont homestead must file a Homestead Declaration annually by the April 18, 2019 filing deadline. A late filing fee will apply after that date. A homestead is the principal dwelling and parcel of land surrounding the dwelling, owned and occupied by the resident as the person’s domicile. All property is considered non- residential, unless it is declared as a homestead. It is your responsibility as the property owner to claim the property as a homestead if you meet, or expect to meet, the following requirements: you are a Vermont resident and you own and occupy a homestead more than 182 days as your domicile as of April 1, 2019. Declare your homestead with the Vermont Tax Department by filing Form HS-122.
The Vermont Property Tax Adjustment assists many Vermont homeowners with paying their property taxes. You may be eligible for a property tax adjustment on your property taxes if your property qualifies as a homestead and you meet all of the following eligibility requirements:
Property Tax Adjustment Claims are made to the Department of Taxes by filing Form HS-122, Section B. Visit the Department of Taxes website at www.tax.vermont.gov or call 1-866-828-2865 for more information.
