No-one enjoys paying taxes and certainly not more than is due, right?  Truth is many do because they are not aware that they can qualify for an exemption on their property taxes.

If you have owned a home as a principle residence in Maine for at least 12 months you’re likely to qualify for a homestead exemption.

There are other exemptions too for Veterans for example and these type of property tax breaks aren’t limited to the state of Maine.

You can find out more at the links below and be sure to talk to your tax preparer this season about any other real estate related tax deductions you may be eligible for.
