Hello and hope your year is off to a great start!
With tax time coming up, I wanted to be sure that you have a copy of your settlement statement/HUD from closing. You will likely need some numbers from it to complete your tax returns this year. If you do not have it please let me know.
For those that purchased a home in the Municipality of Anchorage, I also wanted to send you a copy of the MOA Residential Exemption form. The MOA offers homeowners that owner occupy their residence an exemption of 20% off the assessed value, up to $50,000. This means lower taxes for you! You just need to fill out the form and send it into the MOA by March 15th to take advantage of the exemption. Also if you’re a disabled veteran or senior citizen don’t forget those stack with the Residential Exemption as well

The form asks you for your parcel ID number. This number can be found on the property tax website at: http://www.muni.org/pw/public.html
You will need to type in your name or address to find your property and the parcel ID number will be on the left hand side.
If you’re confused here’s a video guide for you! Happy Tax Season from Alaska Realty Experts…
