SECTION 1



HOMESTEADING




Broadly defined, homesteading is a lifestyle of simple,
agrarian self-sufficiency.

The term may apply to anyone who follows the back-to-the-land
movement by adopting a sustainable, self-sufficient lifestyle.
While land is no longer freely available in most areas of the
world, homesteading remains as a way of life. According to
author John Seymour, 'urban homesteading' incorporates
small-scale, sustainable agriculture and homemaking.

HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION




The homestead exemption is a legal regime designed to protect the
value of the homes of residents from property taxes, creditors, and
circumstances arising from the death of the homeowner spouse. Laws
are found in state statutes or constitutional provisions which exist
in many states in the United States.


Homestead exemption laws typically have four primary features:

1.They prevent the forced sale of a home to meet the demands of
creditors (however, in most cases homestead exemptions do not
apply to forced sales to satisfy mortgages, mechanics liens, or
sales to pay property taxes);

2.They provide the surviving spouse with shelter;

3.They provide an exemption from property taxes which can be
applied to a home.

4.Allows a tax-exempt homeowner to vote on property tax increases
to homeowners over the threshold via bond or millage requests.

For purposes of these statutes, a homestead is the one primary
residence of a person, and no other exemption can be claimed on
any other property anywhere, even outside the boundaries of the
jurisdiction where the exemption is claimed.

BACK TO LAND
MOVEMENT




The phrase "back-to-the-land movement" first referred to distributism,
a 1920s and 1930s attempt to find a third way between capitalism and
socialism.

It was later used to refer to a North American social phenomenon of the
1960s and 1970s. This latter back-to-the-land movement was a migration
from cities to rural areas that took place in the United States, its
greatest vigor being before the mid '70s.
