If you own and occupy your own property, you may be eligible to receive residential or agricultural homestead treatment. Homestead classification makes your property eligible for a reduced classification rate, and/or a reduced taxable value, or may make you eligible for a Property Tax Refund or to enroll in other programs. You must own the property and occupy it as your primary residence by no later than December 31 of the current year to receive homestead for taxes payable next year.
Complete the entire application and submit to the assessor within 30 days of establishing homestead, no later than December 31 to be eligible for homestead in the next tax year. For manufactured homes, you must submit the application by May 29 to be eligible for homestead in the current tax year.
