File for Homestead
We are now taking exemption applications for the 2023 tax year. The deadline to file any exemptions for this tax year is March 1, 2023.
If you purchased property that is your permanent residence in calendar year 2022, you may file online for the 2023 Homestead Exemption reduction through March 1, 2023. This exemption will be reflected on your Notice of Proposed Property Taxes we send out in mid-August 2023.
To qualify for Homestead Exemption (F. S. 196.031), you must have legal or equitable title to the property, as well as occupy and make the property your permanent residence as of January 1 of the filing year.

This includes but is not limited to STAR in New York, 2.5% in Ohio, Principal Residence in Maryland, Lottery & Gaming Credit in Wisconsin and Owner Occupancy in South Carolina. *Almost every state has a residency based property tax exemption. The effective date for removal of exemptions and credits must be on or before January 1, 2023.
