How can I tell if I am receiving the Homestead Deduction?
Check your last real property tax bill. If your bill does not show a deduction for the Homestead Program and you qualify for the deduction, contact the Office of Tax and Revenue at (202) 727-4TAX (727-4829). You probably are eligible for the homestead deduction if the property for which the deduction is sought is occupied as your principal place of residence. Visit Homestead Deduction for more information.
What programs are available for senior citizens?
If you meet certain eligibility criteria, you may qualify for the Senior Citizen Tax Relief Program. The program applies to those property owners who occupy their property as their principal place of residence, are 65 years of age or older, and meet certain income requirements. For information about this program, visit Senior Citizen Real Property Tax Relief.
