Have you filed for your Florida Homestead Exemption?

The March 1st deadline to apply for a Florida homestead exemption is rapidly approaching. If you purchased a new primary home in 2022, this is a deadline you want to mark down!

The Florida homestead exemption entitles homeowners to a deduction off their property’s assessed value, which may result in several hundred dollars in tax savings. Florida residents living in the dwelling and making it their permanent home before January 1, 2023, qualify for the exemption. Additional exemptions may also be available. Application can usually be made in person, through the mail or online.


WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

You will need to fill out a DR-501 form and take it into your local Property Appraiser. Check with your local property appraiser website to see if form is downloadable.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

Based on the county you’re located in, you may be asked for all or some of the following:

• A recorded tax bill with your name

• Florida Driver’s License or ID card

• Florida Voter Registration Card

• Florida Auto Insurance

• Social Security number for each owner


[Please call and confirm with your county appraiser

as to what they will need you to bring]
