$76,000 and $413,800, the exclusion is $30,400 minus nine percent of the valuation over
$76,000. For a homestead valued at $413,800 or more, there is no valuation exclusion. The
valuation exclusion shall be rounded to the nearest whole dollar, and may not be less than
zero.

(c) new text beginFor assessment years 2023 and 2024, the exclusion under this subdivision shall be
determined under this paragraph. For a homestead valued at $107,450 or less, the exclusion
is 40 percent of market value. For a homestead valued between $107,450 and $585,000,
the exclusion is $42,980 minus nine percent of the valuation over $107,450. For a homestead

deleted text begin (d)deleted text endnew text begin (e)new text end In the case of a property that is classified as part homestead and part nonhomestead,
(i) the exclusion shall apply only to the homestead portion of the property, but (ii) if a portion
of a property is classified as nonhomestead solely because not all the owners occupy the
property, not all the owners have qualifying relatives occupying the property, or solely
because not all the spouses of owners occupy the property, the exclusion amount shall be
initially computed as if that nonhomestead portion were also in the homestead class and
then prorated to the owner-occupant's percentage of ownership. For the purpose of this
section, when an owner-occupant's spouse does not occupy the property, the percentage of
ownership for the owner-occupant spouse is one-half of the couple's ownership percentage.
