Don't Overlook Homeowner/Renter Tax Credit


Older Montana homeowners and renters can get a tax break, thanks to a credit tailored to those with household incomes under $45,000.

The Elderly Homeowner/Renter Tax Credit is available to residents 62 and older who lived in the state for at least nine months during 2019. AARP Montana and state officials remind eligible Montanans not to overlook this tax break, which can bring them up to $1,000.

If the credit exceeds their tax liability, filers can obtain the additional amount as a refund.

AARP Foundation’s IRS-certified Tax-Aide volunteers offer assistance at more than 30 Montana locations.
