How Government Leaders Can Identify Homestead Tax Exemption Fraud

Given widespread budget shortfalls, governments must collect every eligible dollar of tax revenue. Many governments have “homestead exemptions”, or laws that shield homeowners from property taxes provided they meet certain requirements for the use of that property. Identifying homestead tax exemption fraud presents an opportunity for governments to recover revenue while ensuring fair and accurate taxation of residents. Unfortunately, these exemptions have many variables that determine eligibility that has traditionally been difficult or cost-prohibitive to track without the right technology.

Join Tyler Masterson of TrueRoll and STR industry expert Ulrik Binzer to learn more about the intersection of homestead exemptions and short-term vacation rentals and why it matters for government leaders.

In this session, you’ll learn about:
• Homestead exemptions, fraud, and missing revenue
• How STRs can impact homestead exemptions
• Modernizing tax audits with technology
