  • Your homestead exemption only has to be filed 1 time while you live in this home.

  • If you move then you will want to file your homestead on your next property.  

  • You can only have 1 homestead at a time as it pertains to the home you live in.

  • The homestead will give you an annual discount on your taxes and it limits the county from increasing your homes tax value by no more than 10% year over year.  

  • Your taxes are calculated by multiplying the tax value by the tax rate.  

  • For example, $400,000 tax value at 2.52% tax rate is $400,000x.0251 = $10,080 per year.  

  • You can find the tax value of your home on this website as it will change every year.

  • You can dispute the value if you feel the tax value exceeds what you can sell your home for today.
