Buyer
Beware

When buying real estate property, do not assume property taxes will remain the same. A change in ownership may reset the assessed value of the property to full market value, which could result in higher property taxes. Please use our Tax Estimator to approximate your new property taxes.

The Property Appraiser does not send tax bills and does not set or collect taxes. Please visit the Tax Collector's website directly for additional information.

The Homestead Exemption saves property owners thousands of dollars each year. Do not jeopardize your Homestead by renting your property.

Before buying real estate property, be aware that non-ad valorem assessments may have a significant impact on your property tax bill.

Residential Renewal Receipt

Report Exemption Fraud

Suspected homestead exemption fraud may be reported to the Property Appraisal Homestead Exemption Investigation Unit by calling 305-375-3402 or by reporting through our online form.

All property owners with a homestead exemption receive an automatic residential renewal receipt in late December under the postal order "Return Service Requested."

A property owner will not receive a renewal receipt in the following cases:

1. If a property owner has a forwarding order or any other mailing change not on record with the Property Appraiser's Office, the receipts are returned by the post office.
2. Renewal receipts are not sent to properties with any ownership change such as warranty deeds and quit claim deeds.

In the case of a mailing address difference, the Property Appraiser's Office will mail a follow up questionnaire by the end of March. Property owners should respond and follow the directions on this mailing to renew their exemptions.

Note about Quit Claim deeds: If, after the ownership change, the previous owner and homestead applicant continue to own and reside on the property, the exemptions will renew. All renewed exemptions will be reflected on the Notice of Proposed Property Taxes mailed by the end of August.

Automatic Renewal

Once an application has been approved, the exemption will automatically renew annually. It is the property owner’s responsibility to promptly notify the Property Appraiser’s Office when the use of the property or the status or condition of the owner changes in ways that affect the legitimacy of the exemption (Florida Statutes 196.131 and 196.161 ).

File the Exemption Cancellation Form to notify the Property Appraiser of these changes.

All property owners with a homestead exemption are mailed an automatic Residential Renewal Receipt as a courtesy notice each year. If you still qualify for the exemptions listed on the receipt, then you do not have to do anything further. You may retain the receipt for your records.

  • If your status has changed and you no longer qualify for any one of the exemptions listed on the receipt, you must indicate which exemptions you are canceling, sign, date and mail the receipt back to the Property Appraiser's Office.
