Homestead Exemption

New, 1 comment

Damn near 105,000 homeowners did not even register to have $30,000 lopped off of their new property assessment — 104,691 to be exact. City officials claim they sent out more than enough notices to inform homeowners of the "homestead exemption," including placing them in water bills. Documents were even translated into multiple languages to encourage homeowners to sign up for relief. Are you surprised by the low participation? [Newsworks, Photo: James Jennings]
