Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Good afternoon Darlene. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
As long as you don't turn your house into a rental property, you can maintain your home exemption. You don't have to actually be occupying the property year round to continue to claim it your homestead. But, you don't want to become a resident of another state even though you may be staying with your daughter for extended periods. What you want to do is keep those visits under 180 days a year so you aren't spending more time in another state.
