Maintenance Alert: Several applications in the Property Appraiser's Online Tools may be unavailable due to required maintenance starting at 7 p.m. on Friday, January 27. All applications should be available on Monday, January 30.


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.

Exemption for Veterans with a Service-Connected Total & Permanent Disability

Florida law provides additional property tax relief for residents who have served in the United States military.

A veteran who was honorably discharged from the armed forces and who sustained a "service-connected total and permanent disability" can qualify for exemption from all ad valorem taxes on his or her homesteaded property.

To qualify the veteran must

  • Be a permanent resident of Florida on January 1 of the year that he or she is applying
  • Have a homestead exemption
  • Have been honorably discharged from the military
  • Have sustained a service-connected total and permanent disability

A veteran applying for the first time must file a Homestead Exemption Application by March 1 and include a letter from the Veteran’s Administration (VA) certifying a Service Connected Total and Permanent disability, or a copy of his or her VA form 27-333 letter that would serve as certification of the disability.

The widow or widower of a service member whose death was the result of a service-connected disabling injury or who died while serving in the military, can also benefit from this exemption.

All property Tax Exemption Applications are due March 1st.
