Homestead Exemption


Your homestead exemption could save you money. It allows for a reduction of the taxes you pay on your property. To receive this benefit, file the appropriate form with the corresponding county where you live.


If you purchased a home in 2016, you must file your exemption now to receive the benefits for 2017. The deadline to file is April 30th, 2017, but this may be different for each county. Check directly with them.


 If you purchased your home prior to 2016 and you did not file it, please contact the county office, you will qualify for the exemption in 2017 and may be able to make it retroactive. You must live in the property and must have been there on or before January 1st of the corresponding year. You will be required to send a copy of your drivers license which must show the address of the property you claim to be your homestead.
