A homestead exemption can give you tax breaks on what you pay in property taxes.
A homestead exemption reduces the amount of property taxes homeowners owe on their legal residence.
You must file with the county or city where your home is located. Each county has different applications and required documents. Various types of homestead exemptions are available, including those based on assessed home value and homeowner age.
Homestead exemption applications are due by April 1 for the current tax year.
