505.0000 HOMEOWNERS' EXEMPTION
505.0105 Temporary Absence.
1. A temporary absence from one's principal residence does not disqualify one for the exemption so long as the property is not leased or rented on the lien date. An absence of more than one year would raise considerable doubt that a residence is a principal residence.
2. Hospitalization in a convalescent home does not disqualify one for the exemption if the claimant expects to return to the dwelling and the property is not leased or rented.
3. An absence for training or employment or a temporary exchange of dwellings with no rentals paid does not disqualify one for the exemption. LTA 3/23/1982 (No. 82/50).
