What is a "Homestead Exemption"? 

The Homestead exemption exempts homeowners from 18 mills of school operating tax. To be eligible for this exemption you must be both the owner and occupant of the property, and have a valid Homestead Exemption Affidavit on file with the Assessor's Office. The Notice of Assessment sent to you each year indicates the percentage of your property that is receiving this exemption. Your tax bills indicate this as well.
