Homestead status

What is homestead status? 

Homestead status is for owner-occupied properties used as their primary residence. Homestead status may qualify the property for a reduced classification rate, reduced taxable market value, property tax refund, and/or special program eligibility.

When can I apply?

You must own, occupy and apply by December 31 to be eligible for the next calendar year's taxes.

How can I apply?

As of January 1, 2023, the homestead program is administered by Hennepin County. Apply online or by mail through the homestead application page on their website.
