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 2012 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 2012 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.
CAUTION: 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 and request a copy for Homestead purposes.
