Homestead Exemption



Filing for Homestead Exemption

Homestead Exemption is one way to reduce the amount of property tax you pay on your residential property. If you occupy your home as your primary residence and have owned/occupied the property as of January 1st, you are eligible to file for the Homestead Exemption. You only have to file this once, and it will automatically renew each year. 

When you file, you may be required to submit one or more of the following: copy of your Warranty Deed, proof of residence, social security numbers, driver’s license and car tag info. If the property is located within city limits, you may be required to file with the city as well.
