Owner Occupied – Deadline Approaching

Homeowners have until March 15 to apply for property tax relief through the owner-occupied program.

Any South Dakotan who owned and occupied a home on Nov. 1, 2018 is eligible for this classification and its property tax reduction. Taxpayers who have previously received this reduction and still own and occupy the same home will continue to receive the property tax reduction without applying.

The 2019 valuation notices sent to taxpayers beginning March 1, 2019 indicate if the property classification is owner-occupied. Homeowners are advised to check their notices to ensure their property is classified as owner-occupied.

Taxpayers who have purchased or built a home prior to Nov. 1, 2018 may apply for this classification through their local county director of equalization.

You can get more information and the application on Fall River County website page or by contacting the Fall River County Director of Equalization office at 745-5136
