I own a property and have a homestead exemption. I also own another property with someone else. Can that person qualify for a homestead exemption on the other property?2020-11-24T20:44:30-06:00

The property you own with another person may qualify for a prorated homestead exemption based on the other person’s ownership in the property and if he/she does not have another property with a homestead exemption. You will not qualify because you already have a homestead exemption for your primary residence.
