Property Taxes & Your Trust

Property Taxes & Your Trust

When you create your Family Trust, it’s important to make sure your property taxes remain as low as possible.

To insure that will be the case, a new application for your homeowner’s property tax exemption must be submitted to the county Assessor’s office.  Along with that, a special Affidavit is submitted which has several pages from your actual trust agreement attached.

When all of this is done correctly – Deed recorded and Affidavit and application submitted – your taxes will continue to enjoy your homeowner’s exemption. 

When this office prepares your Family Trust, we take care of all of these steps for you so you don’t have to worry about your property taxes unexpectedly rising.
