What is the Homestead Tax Relief?
Homestead Application requests are currently being accepted for the 2024 School Tax Year.
The deadline for the 2023 Homestead Tax Relief application was February 28, 2023. Meaning, if you currently applied for the Homestead Tax Relief and your property was approved, the Homestead Tax Relief would be applied to the school tax bill that is mailed out on July 1, 2023.
The 2024 Homestead Tax Relief Application must be received by the Delaware County Homestead Coordinator by February 28, 2024.
For approval, a property must be the fixed place of abode where the owner intends to reside permanently, not temporarily; the place where a person makes their home, until something happens that the person adopts another home. You may be asked to provide proof that this property is your primary residence, such as your driver's license, your voter registration card, your personal income tax form or your local earned income tax form.
Once a property is approved for the Homestead Tax Relief there is no need to re-apply every year. The Homestead Tax Relief will remain with the property until the property is sold/ refinanced/ changed owners.
If you have never been approved, recently purchased your home, or circumstances have changed that will qualify your residence to meet the eligibility requirements, please request an application by clicking the Homestead Application link above.
