Homestead Exemption was created as a benefit for homeowners who live in Florida and make it their permanent and legal residence. If you know of anyone who is claiming homestead exemption on a property that he or she is not permanently residing in, is rented, vacant or is merely a vacation home, we urge you to make a report to our office. In the interest of expediency it is extremely helpful and time saving to an investigation if we speak to you personally but in the end you may remain anonymous if you prefer.

Please remember that the status of a property on January 1 each year is used to determine the property’s value and exemption status FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR. That means if a property owner has Homestead Exemption and sells his property; his exemption will remain on the property for the entire calendar year, and will be removed as of January 1 of the next year. Although there will still be an exemption on the property after the sale, it is NOT the new owner’s exemption.

We are unable to grant extensions at this time. Section 193.063, Florida Statutes, states in part, "A request for extension must be made in time for the property appraiser to consider the request and act on it before the regular due date of the return." We encourage you to file your late return no later than Monday, May 1, 2023, together with a letter explaining the reason for lateness and requesting that penalties be waived. Failure to follow this procedure may result in late-filing penalties that will not be waived at a later date. Be sure to list the six-digit Tangible ID number on each return that you file. Your failure to include this account number may lead to double assessments, misidentified returns, or penalties.

In an effort to “go green,” we will not be mailing blank tax return forms this year. You may download yours from our website, or pick one up at any of our offices.

If you have any questions, please contact our office at 561-355-2896 or
