Instructions for filing your homestead exemption

 


A homestead exemption removes a portion of your home’s value from taxation and saves you money each year on your property taxes.

Starting in 2019, a homestead exemption will prevent the assessed value of your home from increasing more than 10% in any year.


Keep in mind, there are two requirements you must meet to apply for a homestead exemption.

(1) You must own your home on January 1 of the year you are applying.

(2) You may only use your principal residence on January 1 of the year you are applying.
