General Instructions for All Deductions

In order for these deductions to be applied to your property taxes, you must be the owner of the property and filed for the deduction on or before December 31 in order for the deuctions to be credited to the taxes payable the following year.  If you refinance or have a deed change at any time, you will need to re-file these deductions.
