Oklahoma law allows the owner(s ) of real estate property to file for and receive homestead exemption on that property if they were the owners of record on January 1st and are living in that property. In addition, the homestead exemption establishes a legal record of homestead on a residence and provides some legal protections from creditors. Furthermore, having the homestead exemption will save the homeowner $85-$136 per year in taxes.
