Owner-Occupancy Homestead Credit

The owner-occupancy credit is a 2 ½% reduction in the taxes charged by qualified levies. The reduction is applied against real property taxes and manufactured home taxes on any manufactured or mobile home on which a manufactured home tax is assessed. A “homestead” is a dwelling or a manufactured or mobile home taxed as real property that is owned and occupied as a home. See R.C. 323.151(A)(1).
