Verify your homestead deduction by Jan. 1

Thursday, November 1, 2012 - 12:01 am

Allen County homeowners who have not verified that their homestead deduction is properly in place should do so before Jan. 1 as required under a 2009 state law.

The verification form has been included in spring tax statements each of the past three years, but the County Auditor's office also offers a searchable database. Taxpayers who find their properties on the list should complete the verification form found there if that property is their primary residence. Searches can be conducted by name or address. Auditor Tera Klutz said 78 percent of county homeowners have already completed this process.

The database can be found at www.allencountyauditor.us. Questions should be directed to the Auditor's office by calling 449-7241 or by email at acauditor@allencounty.us
