Sorry if you already know this, but I wanted to make folks with acreage aware that now they can claim up to 20 acres for a homestead exemption on their taxes. This is if the land is owned by the homeowner and used as a yard or for another purpose related to the residential use of the homestead.
I believe the old rule was two acres. Iím told it just started this year, and it might help some taxpayers.
