Homestead Exemption: To File or Not to File

Written by Joel Gerber. Posted in Homestead Exemption, Real Estate

For those of you who bought a primary residence in 2012 at a price lower than the 2012 tax assessed value, you should see a reduction in your home’s tax assessed value for 2013. This year (around June), you should receive a valuation notice from the county tax assessor showing that the 2013 tax assessed value of your home is now the purchase price. After you receive the valuation notice showing your home’s new assessed value is now the purchase price, you likely should go ahead and file your Homestead Exemption (which is a small tax break).
