Hi Laura Filip 

Maybe Homestead means different things in different places. Here in MA we file a Homestead for $35. That Homestead Act provides protection from creditors, property tax and other things that pop-up.

Doug Dawes I am sure it does mean different things in different parts of the country. Here in Texas there is a tax credit given for homestead. Yes it does do the same thing here provide for protection from several items. One needs to be sure and visit with the county in which the property is located to ensure this is correctly taken care of.

William Feela Thank you for sharing how  things are done in the great state of Minnesota. I love this state so many good memories for me. Each state does something different and it is important to reach out to the community you live in to ensure you are getting the correct exemptions applied to your situation.
