Homestead is a classification of property that is occupied by an owner or relative of the owner, and is used as a primary place of residence. For properties valued at less than $413,800, a portion of the property’s value is excluded from tax.
Owners must apply for homestead. Homestead classification remains until the property is sold or the owner or relative no longer uses it as a primary place of residence.
If there has been a change in homestead status in the past year please review this important property tax homestead notice (PDF).
