What are Personal Residence Exemptions?
Personal residences are properties that serve as your principal home. They are not cottages, summer homes, etc. Homesteads are the property at which you reside, receive your mail, etc., for the majority of the year. The local Ludington Area School tax is removed on these properties when you declare them to be your "personal residence" and therefore your property taxes are reduced. You may not have more than one "personal residence".
