Are the homestead exclusions on all properties the same?
No. The homestead exclusion is based on a number of factors.
  • First, the homestead exclusion decreases as the property’s market value increases.
  • Second, not all properties are eligible for a full (100%) homestead exclusion.
  • Third, there are other exclusions and or credits attached to homesteaded property that may also affect the amount of the homestead exclusion received.
