FAQs - Homestead Exemption

When did the expanded homestead exemption start?

The expanded homestead exemption started with real property tax bills payable in 2008. For real property, bills paid in the current year cover the previous tax year; for example, bills paid in 2011 cover the 2010 tax year, and so on for subsequent years. For manufactured or mobile homes, bills paid in 2011 cover the 2011 tax year, and so on for subsequent years.
