General Instructions and Information
Owner-Occupancy Credit: The owner-occupancy credit is
a 2 1/2% reduction in the taxes charged by quali ed 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).
Quali cations: To receive the owner-occupancy homestead
tax reduction, you must own and occupy your home as your
principal place of residence (domicile) on Jan. 1 of the year
you le for the reduction. A homeowner and spouse are
entitled to this homestead tax reduction on only one home
in Ohio, unless they can establish that they are domiciled
separately. A person only has one principal place of resi-
dence. Your principal place of residence determines, among
other things, where you are registered to vote and where you
declare residency for income tax purposes.
Current Application: If you are applying for the owner-
occupancy tax reduction for the rst time this year, check
the box for Application for This Year.
Late Application: If you also quali ed for the owner-occu-
pancy homestead tax reduction for last year, but did not le
an application last year, you may le a Late Application by
checking the late application box on the front of this form.
