2017 HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION

2017 HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION INFO

A homestead exemption helps you save on your home property taxes. An exemption discounts the home value approximately 20% and lowers your taxes. For example, if your home is valued at $100,000 and you qualify for a $20,000 exemption, you pay taxes on your home for only $80,000 of the value.

APPLICATION FOR RESIDENCE HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION

Filing the homestead form is FREE and you only need to do it one time. It will renew automatically, thereafter. You should file your regular residential homestead exemption application between January 1 and April 30. Early applications will not be accepted. If your application is postmarked by April 30, this will allow the district time to process it before your tax statement comes out in the fall.
