How does property tax relief work for “mixed use” properties?
For properties that contain both residential and non-residential portions, the part of the property occupied by the owner may qualify. The Homestead value for these properties will be the amount of the property that is equal to the portion of the dwelling that is used as the domicile of the owner. You are eligible to apply providing you indicate what percentage of the property is used solely as your residence in question number 10 on the Homestead/Farmstead Application.
