Property Taxes: Homestead Applications Due Dec. 15

The deadline to file for homestead for the 2014 assessment, paid in 2015, is Dec. 15, 2014.

Residents need to apply for homestead if they’ve purchased a property in the past year and they, or a qualifying relative, occupy the property for homestead purposes on Dec. 1, 2014. Applications also need to be submitted for properties being used for homestead purposes on Dec. 1, 2014 that were previously classified as non-homestead.

Applications must be submitted to the County Assessor's office. Once a homestead designation has been granted, the Homestead Market Value Exclusion will be applied to property taxes payable in 2015.

Contact 651-266-2040 or for additional assistance.
