Property Tax Exemptions

$50,000 Homestead Exemption

Every person who owns and resides on real property in Florida on January 1st and makes the property his or her permanent residence is eligible to receive a homestead exemption up to $50,000. The first $25,000 applies to all property taxes, including school district taxes. The additional exemption up to $25,000, applies to the assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000 and only to non-school taxes.

If filing for the first time you must go directly to the county tax appraiser’s office in person by March 1st of the qualifying year. A perfect time to go would be when you receive your copy of the deed in the mail.
