                             HOMESTEAD DEADLINE FOR NEW HOMEOWNERS


If you purchased your home after January 2, 2007, but before December 1, 2007, you may be eligible for a mid-year homestead.  If you own and occupy the property as your principal residence, and are a Minnesota resident, you must file with your Assessor prior to December 15, 2007, to receive homestead for the 2007 assessment year for taxes payable in 2008.  If you are a qualifying relative of the owner and are occupying the property as your primary residence, the property may also be eligible for a homestead classification.  This will affect the amount of property tax you pay in 2008, and it may affect your eligibility for a property tax refund.
