Do I qualify for the Low-Income Senior Citizen Property Tax Credit?

If you recently received a WV/SCTC-1 in the mail from the West Virginia State Tax Department for the Homestead Exemption program administered at the county level, you may be entitled to claim a refundable state income tax credit. The credit is based on the amount of property taxes paid on the first $20,000, or portion thereof, of the taxable assessed value over the $20,000 Homestead Exemption. If you have to pay the federal alternative minimum tax, you aren't eligible to claim this credit.

If you don't have this form or if you have any questions regarding this credit, contact West Virginia Taxpayer Services at 1-800-WVA-TAXS (1-800-982-8297).
