Do Not Lose Your Florida Homestead Exemption

Every person who owns and resides on real property in Florida on January 1 and makes the property their 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.

When filing for the first time, the homeowner should be prepared to answer these questions:

1. In whose name or names was the title to the dwelling recorded as of January 1st?

2. What is the street address of the property?

3. How long have you been a legal resident of the State of Florida? (A Declaration of Domicile or Voter's Registration will be proof of date before January 1st).

4. Do you have a Florida license plate on your car and a Florida driver's license?

5. Were you living in the dwelling on January 1st (January 1st is the date on which permanent residence is determined)?

The deadline for filing without a fee is March 1st. All applicants must have:

1. A valid Florida driver's license (a license valid only in the state of Florida is not acceptable); and

2. A Florida voter's registration or a notarized, recorded Declaration of Domicile.
