Schedule H Tax Preparation

En español | Legal Counsel for the Elderly assists low-income seniors who do not need to file a complete tax return with filing for the D.C. Schedule H property tax credit.

Eligibility for the Property Tax Credit

Low-income D.C. residents may qualify for up to $1000 for property taxes or rent paid by filing the D.C. Schedule H tax form. The D.C. Office of Tax Revenue determines eligibility for the credit:

  • D.C. resident from January 1st to December 31st
  • Rent or own and live in home or apartment
  • Income below $40,000 per year
  • Income below $60,000 if over 70 years old
  • Some rental properties do not qualify

Our Services

We assist clients who do not need to file a complete tax return. We screen clients to see whether they are likely to qualify. If so, we meet with clients, in our office or at pro bono clinics, to review the Schedule H tax form and the documentation needed. We assist with submitting the form to the Office of Tax Revenue. If the credit is not received within three months, we assist with calling the Office of Tax Revenue to learn the reason for the denial.
