Property Appraiser Pedro J. Garcia Has Mailed Important Property Tax Saving Exemption Benefits Information to Miami-Dade County Homeowners
Miami-Dade County, FL – Property Appraiser Pedro J. Garcia mailed out important tax saving exemption benefit information to residential property owners in Miami-Dade County. This includes courtesy homestead applications for new homeowners, encouraging them to apply for their Homestead Exemption, as well as automatic renewal receipts.
With the COVID-19 pandemic financially affecting many property owners, homeowners are strongly encouraged to review their property tax exemption benefits to ensure they are receiving all the benefits they deserve. Additionally, homeowners should carefully review their renewal receipts to ensure they still qualify for their exemption(s). If the property owners remain eligible in 2021, no further action is needed, but they are encouraged to keep the document for their records. However, if they no longer qualify for their exemption(s), Florida law requires property owners to notify the Property Appraiser. To cancel exemptions they no longer qualify for, property owners should sign the cancellation portion of the receipt and return it to the Office of the Property Appraiser at 111 NW 1st Street, Suite 710, Miami, FL 33128 by Monday, March 1, 2021.
“I urge all property owners, especially those financially affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, to please review these important documents carefully. I want everyone that can qualify for an exemption to apply today on our website or in-person, especially if they have recently purchased a new home,” adds Property Appraiser Garcia.
