No, if you own a home, you owe property taxes like everyone else. Sorry. kliszlaw.com Tim Klisz

Not totally exempt, but you can get a refund of all homestead property taxes in excess of 3.5% of your income. At $10,000 annually, that would be $350. Most areas allow you to defer your summer tax due date so you can apply for that credit before the winter taxes are due.
