The Homeowner's Principal Residence Exemption Affidavit allows you to claim an exemption on your home which will lower your school tax bill. For you to be eligible for this exemption, you must own and occupy your house as your legal principal residence by June 1st of each year. This form is filed at your local Assessor's Office and is good until you sell your house or change the use of your property to a second home or to a rental home. You may only claim one house as your principal residence.

The forms can be downloaded and printed, then can be mailed to the Assessor's Office.
