Homestead ActEVERYONE should file for a homestead, regardless of if they are or are not running a home business. It provides incredible protection for your home, if you ever get sued. In essence it says your primary residence is your homestead and cannot be taken as part of a legal action. It costs maybe $10 or $15 to file and you can in many places print the form off the internet and then mail it in.
Check with your local town or county to find out who handles registering a homestead. Then do it. It's one less thing to worry about!
