Homestead Exemption Application Online Filing
On Thursday January 10, 2013, only his third day in office, newly installed Property Appraiser Carlos Lopez-Cantera announced the implementation of 100% online exemption filing.
Homeowners can now complete the entire application process for Florida’s Homestead Exemption and for the Homestead Assessment Difference (commonly referred to as Portability) on this website, and submit their application directly to the Property Appraiser’s Office.
Previously homeowners had only two options; either apply in person or mail the application to the Property Appraiser’s office.
Announcing the launch of this online application process, Property Appraiser Lopez-Cantera stated, “This is only the first of many customer friendly initiatives aimed at improving the service we provide to the residents of Miami-Dade County. We look forward to announcing additional customer friendly improvements in the weeks and months ahead.”
About the Exemption Process
Prior to completing the application, homeowners are advised to view the requirements for the various exemptions.
Homestead Exemption Requirements
The Office of the Property Appraiser mails Homestead Exemption application forms and qualification guidelines to persons who bought homes during the current year. The qualification guidelines are also available on this website. See the list of available exemptions and application requirements here.
