How to Homestead your property


Homestead applies to properties occupied as primary residences by their owners or relatives. The program may qualify the property for a reduced classification rate, reduced taxable market value, property tax refund, and special program eligibility.

Once homestead is granted, annual reapplication is not necessary. In some circumstances, the assessor's office may request verification.

Homesteading is no longer done through the City. Please visit the Hennepin County link below to apply for Homestead.
