The Homestead Exemption Office accepts applications for the various residential exemption applications and agricultural land use applications.

To apply for homestead, you must bring the following:

  • Car tag numbers for all vehicles owned by you or in your possession. (Non-Jackson County tags must be changed before filing).
  • Social Security numbers for yourself, spouse, and any joint owners.
  • Birth dates for yourself, spouse, and any joint owners.
  • Purchase price of home.
  • Purchase price of land, if you purchased it separately from the home.
  • If you built your home yourself, we need to know the cost to build it.
  • If you live in a mobile home on your property, you must bring your mobile home registration certificate.
  • If you are 65 years of age or older, you need to bring proof of age, such as a driver's license or birth certificate.
  • If you are 100% disabled, you should inquire as to what you should do.
