If you owned a home in Nebraska on January 1 and purchased a new home between January 1 to August 15, you can transfer your homestead exemption to your new home. You must file the application (Form 458) with the county assessor’s office where the original home resides between February 2 to June 30. You will then file a Form 458T - Transfer of Homestead Exemption on or before August 15 with the county assessor’s office where the new home resides.
The Date of Deed is used to determine the ownership and not the sale date. If you have any questions, please call our office at 402-593-2122.
