OTR Homestead Unit Suspending Processing Of Homestead Applications

The division of the DC Office of Tax and Revenue that processes Homestead/Senior/Disabled applications (FP-100) has announced that, as of July 17, 2019, it will suspend the processing of applications, grant benefits, and tax account adjustments. This action was “taken to meet a demanding billing timeline to reconcile tax accounts” associated with the upcoming 2019 2nd half tax year billing.

It is anticipated that the office will resume normal processing on August 16, 2019, but that it may take up to 45 days for accounts to be “updated and a corrected tax bill mailed”. Obviously, tax bills that go out without current homestead reductions may be paid (by lenders and others) in the interim, which may require refunds of overpayments.

Inquiries should be directed to homestead@dc.gov.
