Qualifying for Senior Exemption

  • Applicant must have homestead exemption
  • Be 65 or older as of January 1
  • And the Adjusted Gross Income for all persons living in the house (even those not an owner) must be less than statutory limits

Applications DR-501SC are due by March 1st.

Renewing Senior Exemption

The Senior Citizen’s Exemption is now automatically renewed each year. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to file a Sworn Statement of Income every year with the Property Appraiser's office. The Property Appraiser mails Sworn Statements of Income every year as reminders.

Canceling Senior Exemption

Florida Law prescribes that is the duty of the owner of any property to notify the Property Appraiser promptly, whenever the use of the property or the status or condition of the owner changes, so as to change the exempt status of the property.

If any owner fails to so notify the Property Appraiser and the Property Appraiser determines that for any year within the prior ten years the owner was not entitled to receive such exemption, the property shall be subject to the taxes exempted as a result of such failure, plus 15 percent interest per annum, and a penalty of 50 percent of the taxes exempted. Reference Sec.196.131 and 196.161.
