When you are looking at Kalamazoo and Portage homes, you will notice that the tax rate is determined by the percentage of homestead. A 100% homestead means that the person living in the house is an owner occupant. A 0% homestead means that the house has a tenant currently living in it. If you are purchasing a house as your principal residence and the rate on the home that you are looking at says that the homestead rate is 0%, then you will need to determine what the rate will be as an owner occupant.
