This form must be filed each year by every Vermont resident whose property meets the definition of a homestead.
A Vermont homestead is the principal dwelling and parcel of land surrounding the dwelling, owned and occupied by a resident individual as the individual’s domicile on April 1. If your homestead is leased to a tenant on April 1, you may still claim it as a homestead if it is not leased for more than 182 days in the 2019 calendar year.

· The property’s School Property Account Number (SPAN) printed on the property tax bill
· The property owner’s Social Security Number
· The code of the Vermont school district in which the property is located, which may be found on the property tax bill (the school code is the middle three digits of the SPAN).
