Can I have homestead on two properties?

No you cannot have homestead on two properties. Neither you or your spouse can legally claim homestead on two separate properties by claiming one property in one spouse's name and the other property in the other spouse's name. Homestead may be granted on the property considered to be your primary residence. If any taxpayer is found to be receiving homestead on two or more properties, or on a property they do not permanently reside in, the Tax Assessor's office reserves the right to fine them two times the savings per year for three years that double exemption was received.
