I live in a community that is classified as a housing cooperative. Am I eligible to receive the homestead exemption?

Starting in tax year 2009 (bills payable in 2010), residents of any housing cooperative with two or more units may be eligible for the homestead exemption. Previously, the exemption had been limited to housing cooperatives with at least 250 units. To apply, housing cooperative residents should contact their county auditors.
