File Your Homestead Declaration by April 15

File Your Homestead Declaration by April 15

IMPORTANT!

Even if you are not ready to file your VT tax return by the April 15 deadline, PLEASE FILE YOUR Vermont Homestead Declaration (Form HS-122) NO LATER THAN APRIL 15, 2024.

Filing HS-122 on time is what helps reduce your property tax liability. When filed on time, it helps:
- the Town issue you an accurate property tax bill,
- reduces the stress on homeowners and the frustration of receiving inaccurate property tax bills, followed by additional revised tax bills,
- helps the Town Office maintain accurate financial records.

If you (or your tax preparer) miss the April 15, 2024 filing deadline, it affects the accuracy of your Barnard homestead property tax bill, and creates havoc and headaches for you, your tax preparer, and the Barnard Town Office. The Town of Barnard does not waive the penalty homeowners may be assessed for filing after the April 18 deadline.

The Barnard Town Office appreciates your help in filing your VT Homestead Declaration (form HS-122) on time to make property tax season easier to navigate for all of us. Thank you.
