Florida Homestead Tax Exemption Deadline



The March 1st deadline to apply for a Florida homestead tax exemption is rapidly approaching.  If you moved to a new home within the last year, this is a deadline you do not want to miss!
In the state of Florida, a $25,000 exemption is applied to the first $50,000 of your property’s assessed value if your property is your permanent residence and you owned the property on January 1 of the tax year. This exemption applies to all taxes, including school district taxes. An additional exemption of up to $25,000 will be applied if your property’s assessed value is between at least $50,000 and $75,000. This exemption is not applied to school district taxes. If you’ve already applied, the County will send a receipt of the exemption after January 1st of the year. 

It is important to apply because in 1994 the State of Florida established a 3% Save Our Homes Cap (SOH) assessment limit on all residential properties that receive a homestead exemption. The 3% SOH Cap limits any increase to the assessed value of a homestead exempt property for tax purposes to a maximum of 3% each year or the amount of the change in the Consumer Price Index, whichever is lower.

The Taxable Value for a homestead exempt property is the assessed value minus the amount of the exemption or exemptions granted the property owner.

For more information, please call Exemption Services at 561.355.2866.
