Homeowners, sfh, condo, co-op, get a discount on annual taxes based on an exemption, which is taken off the estimated value by the tax appraiser; people who are not homesteaded pay a high taxe on a similar property because they don't qualify for the exemption....KathyBC 800-448-3411 ext 601 (11/18)

Homesteading allows a permanent resident to claim a deduction from the Appraised Value of the Home that are not taxed. Additional, any property taxes are capped at 3% increase per year, so it helps property owners from exorbitant tax increases when prices are rising sharply.
