Are you getting your Homestead Tax Credit On your P.G. County Real Estate Taxes? It was discovered that one of my clients was not getting the Homestead Tax Credit because P.G County thought he was not living in his home, therefore, his taxes were higher. Since his property taxes are combined with his mortgage payment,when his property taxes are lowered, his payment to his mortgage company will be lowered. Check your P.G. County assessment that was sent to you in the U.S. mail and/ or call me to discuss choices.

Are you paying hazard insurance on your home? If so, how much?
