California residents will see a more generous homestead exemption, as of January 1, 2021, when the standard Homestead exemption increases from $75,000 to a range from $300,000 to $600,000 depending on your county.
LegalConsumer.com has added a California Exemption Calculator to help you quickly find what the exemption amount is in your county.
The new law states that the homestead exemption amount is based on:
- the average county-wide sale price for a home
- in the previous calendar year
- But not less than $300,000
- and not more than $600,000.
The California Homestead calculator shows you the rate for every county in California county based on available numbers from the California Realtors Association. Those numbers may change slightly when the official numbers are finalized for the year 2020. As of this writing, Jan 1, 2020, the numbers you see in the calculator are based on monthly numbers through November 2020. The the final numbers will be close to what you see in the calculator.
