Exemptions

       

Homestead
 

Our office will accept exemption applications for the 2017 Tax Year until March 1, 2017 . Applications submitted from March 2, 2016 through March 1, 2017 will be for the 2017 Tax Year.

We offer 3 easy ways to file for the exemption:   apply in person, apply by mail or online.





A Constitutional benefit of up to $50,000, available to bona fide Florida residents who live in, and claim a residence as their permanent and primary home on January 1, and file an application with the Property Appraiser's Office prior to March 1. It exempts the first $25,000 and applies to the Assessed Value of all taxing levies. The second $25,000 applies to the Assessed Value beginning at $50,000 up to $75,000, of all taxing levies with the exception of the School District.

The exemption amount is incremental, depending on the Assessed Value of the property.
  • If your Homestead property has an Assessed Value of up to $50,000, you will keep the current exemption of $25,000.
  • If your Homestead property has an Assessed Value of $50,001 through $74,999, the additional homestead exemption will increase up to $24,999.
  • If your Homestead property has an Assessed Value of $75,000 or more, you will receive the full additional $25,000 Homestead Exemption.
The additional exemption applies to all taxing levies with the exception of the School District.
