How often do I have to apply for homestead?

Once the property is granted the homestead classification, it will not be necessary for you to reapply for the classification. However, the County Assessor may at any time require you to provide an additional application or such proof, as they deem necessary to verify that you continue to meet the requirements of the homestead classification. Relatives of owners claiming homestead classification will be sent a questionnaire every year to confirm they are still living on the property, which they need to complete, sign and return in order to retain this classification. If this is not returned, the homestead classification will be removed for that assessment year.
