In light of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, the State has placed funding for Homestead Credits in reserve to meet emergency and statutorily required obligations. Therefore,
**THERE WILL BE NO HOMESTEAD CREDIT APPLIED TOWARD YOUR MAY TAXES.** The Tax Bill you have at home with amount shown on the 2020-2 stub is due in May.
