What should I enter for general property tax paid?

If you own your mobile home or manufactured home, enter the personal property taxes you paid on your home, as well as the general property tax you paid on the land. However, if you rented the land or lot on which your mobile home sits, only enter property tax paid on the home. You may not claim the general property tax paid on the rented property.

If your homestead is part of a farm covered by a single property tax statement, you may use only the general property tax paid on the homesite.

You are NOT required to submit a copy of your 2013 property tax statement with Form K-40H. However, you may be asked to provide this documentation at a later time in order to verify your refund claim.

If you are asked to provide a copy of your property tax statement, you must submit a copy of your 2013 statement (not a basic receipt) to verify the general property tax amount. This copy will not be returned. A property tax receipt that contains a breakdown of property tax among the general tax, special tax, fees, etc. (such as a receipt that is an exact copy of the statement) is acceptable.

Note: The annual statement from your mortgage company and some property tax receipts are NOT acceptable because they do not have a breakdown of the tax paid among general tax, special tax, late fees, etc. If you do not have a copy of your property tax statement, contact your county clerk.
