A Homestead Exemption is an exemption of $1,000 of the assessed valuation of your primary residence. In tax year 2016, this was a savings of $91 to $139 depending on where you live in the county.
- You must be the homeowner of record who resides on the property by January 1.
- The property deed must be notarized on or before January 1 and filed with the County Clerk's Office on or before February 1.
- You must be a resident of Oklahoma.
Homestead Exemption applications are accepted at any time throughout the year. However, the application must be filed by March 15 or within 30 days from the date of issue on the "Notice of Increase in Assessed Value of Real Estate" to be approved for the current year. Any application filed after these dates cannot be approved until the following year.

You are not required to apply for a Homestead Exemption each year if you have been granted a Homestead Exemption and continue to occupy the homestead property. However, if you change your deed or move you will need to file a new application.
If the application is denied, the property owner has the right to appeal to the Tulsa County Board of Equalization. (Title 68 O.S. §2895)
