What is a Homestead Exemption?
One of the easiest ways to save money on property taxes is to claim your homestead exemption, a legal provision that reduces the amount of tax owed on owner-occupied homes. Homeowners must file by April 1. File once and the basic exemption is yours for as long as you own your home. People with disabilities and aging homeowners may become eligible for special exemptions that require new applications or renewal.
The 2022 Home Empowerment Workshop Series is sponsored by Delta, Wells Fargo, and Annie E. Casey Foundation.
