This does not reduce the liability of any person for special assessments levied upon any property.

Applications must be submitted yearly for approval.


You must own and reside in the home as of February 1 each year.


A person whose homestead is exempt as a farm residence pursuant to N.D.C.C § 57-02-08(15) is not eligible for this credit.
