(b) The homestead is the homestead of the spouse of the taxpayer and meets the requirements of ORS 311.706.
(2) The election under subsection (1) of this section to continue the property in its deferred status by the spouse shall be filed in the same manner as a claim for deferral is filed under ORS 311.704, not later than August 15 of the year following the calendar year in which the circumstances listed in ORS 311.716 occur.
