Property Tax Payment Assistance to Avoid Foreclosure for Homeowners Affected by Covid-19 is Available

Dallas County Tax Assessor John R. Ames just mailed almost 4,000 notices to property owners who may qualify for assistance on their delinquent property taxes. “I’m grateful that we have the opportunity to notify home owners about this program and hope they take the time and research to determine if they qualify and apply for this assistance” stated Mr. Ames.

In March of 2021, the Federal Government passed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) that created a Homeowner's Assistance Fund (HAF) to help homeowners that have fallen behind on payment of certain obligations, including delinquent property taxes, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A portion of these funds have been allocated to the State of Texas, and are to be administered through the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA).

Qualified homeowners could receive assistance that would pay delinquent taxes due on their homestead in order to avoid foreclosure. Funds are only available for homestead properties. However, the funds are limited and prompt action is highly recommended to those individuals that may qualify for these funds. Homeowners will be required to apply and provide a copy of their tax statement, along with meeting additional requirements and qualifications. If approved, payments will be made directly to the Dallas County Tax Office.

For qualifications and details please call 833-651-3874 or visit www.TexasHomeownerAssistance.com


Asistencia Disponible a Propietarios de Vivienda Para Evitar Ejecucion Hipotecaria por Impuestos Morosos y Afectados por Covid-19

El Asesor de Impuestos del Condado de Dallas, John R. Ames, acaba de enviar por correo casi 4,000 avisos a propietarios que pueden calificar para recibir asistencia con sus impuestos a la propiedad atrasados. “Agradezco que tengamos la oportunidad de notificar a los propietarios de viviendas sobre este programa y espero que se tomen el tiempo e investiguen para determinar si califican y solicitar esta asistencia”, declaró el Sr. Ames.

En marzo de 2021, El Gobierno Federal aprobó la ley de Plan de Rescate Estadounidense (ARP) creando el Fondo de Asistencia a Propietarios de Vivienda (HAF) para ayudar a propietarios de vivienda que se han atrasado en el pago de ciertas obligaciones, incluyendo impuestos de propiedad atrasados debido a la pandemia del COVID-19. Parte de éstos fondos han sido asignados al Estado de Texas, y serán administrados por medio del Departamento de Vivienda y Asusntos Comunitarios. (TDHCA).

Propietarios calificados podrían recibir asistencia que pagaría impuestos atrasados en su residencia principal para evitar la ejecución hipotecaria. Los fondos están disponibles solo para viviendas principales. Sin embargo, los fondos son limitados y se recomienda acción immediata de aquellos individuos que podrían calificar para éstos fondos. Los propietarios de vivienda deben aplicar y proporcionar una copia de su estado de cuenta junto con requisitos adicionales. De ser aprobado, los pagos se harán directamente a Dallas County Tax Office.
