Homeowners’ Exemption versus Homestead Exemptions

Homeowners’ Exemption is a statutory tax provision, which provides a homeowner a $7,000 reduction off the taxable value on their primary residence. With an approximate 1 percent property tax rate, the exemption provides roughly a $70 annual saving off your property taxes.

Homestead Exemption is a civil code provision, which may protect part of the homes equity from creditors. It has no application in property assessment or taxation. For more details on automatic and declaring a Homestead Exemption visit Department of Consumer & Business Affairs’ website on Homestead Protection.

For more information on filing visit the Los Angeles County Registrar Recorder’s Homestead Exemption page for forms and filing requirements. They can also be reached at 1 (800) 201-8999. The Registrar Recorder’s Office is the authorized county agency to record deeds and Declarations of Homestead.
