The Florida homestead exemption bills (HB 7105 and SB 1774) propose increasing the maximum homestead exemption from $50,000 to $75,000. This means a $200,000 assessed house would be taxed as if it were worth $125,000 or a 100,000 as though it were worth $25,000 for non-school taxes. Since the increased homestead involves a change to the Florida Constitution voters will have to approve the measure in November. However, it must first win the support from three-fifths of the House and Senate, 72 House members, and 24 Senators to reach the ballot.
The property on which you wish to apply for Homestead Exemption must be your primary place of residence on January 1 of the year for which you are making an application.
The Pasco County Property Appraiser’s office is now accepting applications for Homestead Exemption online. Approved exemptions will renew annually, unless a change in status occurs. Example: property is sold, owner relocates, etc.
You may only receive Homestead Exemption at your permanent place of residence.
