About the Homestead Tax Exemption

Homestead Exemption is a privilege offered to eligible taxpayers by the State of Mississippi.  The exemption is not granted automatically.  An application must be filed and each taxpayer must qualify for the exemption. 

You will need to file for homestead if the following changes were made:

  • You bought property
  • You sold part of your homestead property
  • You bought more acres and want to add it to the existing homestead
  • You were married or divorced
  • You became 100% disabled
  • Your spouse died
  • You turned 65
