HOMESTEAD TAX CREDIT APPLICATION
Pre-populated Homestead Tax Credit Application Forms are available to be printed on our website. If you are a homeowner who occupies your permanent residence in Linn County, outside the city limits of Cedar Rapids, and you do not currently have a Homestead credit on your property you can print the application from within your parcel. Under "Real Estate Search" enter your property address. When you are in the parcel that your home is on, next to "Homestead" click the "here" link. This brings up the Homestead form that needs to be printed, filled out, signed and returned to our office. Applying in person at our office is always acceptable. For questions contact us at 319-892-5220 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
