Amendment 1: Will you Benefit? Run the estimator ( to find out if you will receive any exemption benefit from the proposed 3rd Homestead Exemption (additional $25,000) that will be on the ballot for the November 6, 2018 General Election.

Please Note:

  • All calculations are based on 2017 assessment roll data and 2017 final millage rates.
  • Recent purchases in 2017 and 2018 may show $0 benefit as a new homestead application may not yet be reflected at this address.
  • Assessed value must exceed $100,000 to receive any benefit from the 3rd Homestead Exemption.
  • Full (100%) benefit from the 3rd Homestead Exemption is not received unless your property's Assessed Value is greater than or equal to $125,000.
  • Estimates assume no partial homesteads. Homestead percentages less than 100% would result in a lower estimate.
  • If passed, this exemption would take effect January 1, 2019 for the 2019 tax year.
