Did you move in 2015? Don't forget to file homested exemptions

If you moved to Putnam County in 2015 and it's now your primary residence and you are not claiming homested exemptions anywhere else then you need to get on down to the Tax Commissioners office at the court house and file. You have to have moved in the home prior to January 1, 2016 to be eligible for the exemption in 2016. You can file anytime between now and the end of March.  But you do not have to wait until next year. You can go ahead a file now although your exemption will not start until next year.

This exemption does not apply if it's a second/vacation home. But if you purchased a vacation home that is a future retirement home then remember to file when you decide to make the move.
