FAQs - Homestead Exemption

When did the resumption of a means-tested homestead exemption begin?

The means-tested homestead exemption started with persons who turned 65 in 2014. The means-tested homestead exemption began with real property tax bills payable in 2015. For real property, bills paid in the current year cover the previous tax year. So, for example, bills paid in 2018 cover the 2017 tax year, and so on for subsequent years. For manufactured or mobile homes, bills paid in the current year cover the current year, so bills paid in 2018 cover the 2018 tax year, and so on for subsequent years.
