We are here to help you apply for Homestead Exemption benefits  

Property Appraiser Gary R. Nikolits, CFA, reminds new homeowners they may qualify for Florida's Homestead Exemption property tax saving benefit. Florida grants qualified residents a standard $25,000 exemption off a property's assessed value. An additional exemption benefit up to $25,000 from the standard $25,000 may also apply.

If you purchased a home in 2013, the filing deadline is Monday, March 3, 2014. You can apply in person at any of our five Service Centers in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Delray Beach, or Belle Glade. Our Service Center in Royal Palm Beach is temporarily closed.

To apply in person, the deadline is 5 p.m., Monday, March 3. To apply online, the deadline is 11:59 p.m., Monday, March 3.

To qualify, the property must be the owner's primary residence as of Dec. 31, 2013, and the owner must be a permanent resident of Florida and cannot hold any residency-based benefits in other Florida counties or states.

"To find out more about Florida's Homestead Exemption and how it can save you money, please call my office at (561) 355-2866," said Property Appraiser Nikolits.
