Eligible homeowners are receiving their 2016 Homestead Benefit property tax relief in two payments this year. Most eligible homeowners received the first half of the benefit as a credit on their second-quarter property tax bill, or by check, around May 1, 2019. If you received a benefit earlier this year, you can expect the second half of the benefit as a credit or check on or about November 1, 2019. The amount of your second credit or check should equal the amount you initially received. You do not need to reapply or take any action to receive the additional payment. Re-visit our website in the fall for more information or to check the status of your benefit.
