Do you rent?  

If you rent, apply for Vermont’s Renter Credit tax credit. (Formerly called the renter rebate.) First check the requirements, which include being a Vermont resident for all of the year and renting in Vermont for six of those months – even if you moved and even if you did not pay all your rent. You may also be eligible if you own a home and sell it and then rent for the rest of the year. 

Do you own your home?  

If you meet certain income and residency requirements, the State of Vermont can help pay your property taxes. You could be eligible for up to $8,000 of Property Tax Credit.  

File for these credits when you file your income taxes. If you don’t file income taxes, you may still qualify for a credit.
