How does the homeowner's exemption work?

The Homeowner's Exemption is a program that reduces property taxes for individuals who own and occupy their home as their primary residence. This is done by reducing the net taxable value of the home and up to one acre of land. Beginning in 2021 the maximum homeowner's exemption reduction increased to $125,000 and will remain that amount until the legislature changes it. 

To qualify for this exemption you must own and occupy the home as your primary and current residence. You can file an application any time AFTER you purchase, move in, and make the home your primary residence.
