If you have any questions about the application / filing process, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Luxe Property Group.  Requirements to apply are a state issued Driver’s License or Identification card showing your current physical address and you usually only have to apply once and not annually.  We worked with several home owners in the last year that never filed for their exemption and lived in their homes for 5 or even 10 years.  They would have saved thousands and thousands of dollars if they would have filled out a short form with their county!  We want to make sure this doesn’t happen to you, so please make sure you file on time.
