Why File a Homestead Declaration/Property Tax Credit?  (32 V.S.A. § 5410)

A homestead owner shall declare ownership of a homestead for purposes of education property tax. Annually on or before the due date for filing the Vermont income tax return, without extension, each homestead owner shall declare his or her homestead as of April 1 of the year in which the declaration is made.

"Homestead" means the principal dwelling and parcel of land surrounding the dwelling, owned and occupied by a resident.

The Vermont Property Tax Credit assists many homeowners with paying their property taxes. You may be eligible for a property tax credit if your property qualifies as a homestead and you meet the eligibility requirements.
