The 2.5% exemption reduces the property's taxes by that amount only if it is the person's primary residence.  As of November 2013, any levy that is not a renewal will no longer be subject to these rollbacks.  The state has lifted these rollbacks for all new and replacement levies.

However, if a person is either totally disabled or elderly (and meets the income and eligibility requirements), there could also be an additional tax exemption on the property.
