OK, Hoosiers, in your property tax bill, there was a pink form that you need to fill out and return to be sure you do NOT lose your Homestead Property Tax Exemption!!! Sounds ominous, right?
Well, yes, it is true, you need to get that paper turned in to verify that you still qualify for the exemption. It IS a big deal, and losing that exemption WILL cost you money.
HOWEVER, you have until January 1, 2013 to get that paper filed. While it is certainly best to get it done now, you don’t have to panic if the paper has already been lost, shredded, thrown away or whatever. Just whatever you do, don’t forget about it over the next few years, saying you’ll do it later and then never actually getting it taken care of!
I’ll remind you.
