505.0000 HOMEOWNERS' EXEMPTION
505.0078 Principal Residence. Whether a dwelling located in California is a person's principal place of residence is a question of fact. To qualify for the exemption, a dwelling must be the person's true, fixed and permanent home and principal establishment to which he/she, whenever absent, intends to return. In-state presence, vehicle registration, voter registration, bank accounts, and state income tax filings are among the matters to be considered in determining residency, which, for exemption purposes, is equivalent to domicile. C 11/20/1984.
