WELCOME and thank you for using our online Homestead Exemption application.
We hope you will find the process convenient and user friendly. It is safe and secure
since your personal information is not stored on our web server. Once it is submitted
it is held as confidential.
If you are a Florida resident and qualify for Homestead Exemption, you could have
the final assessment on your primary residence reduced by up to $50,000. Also, the
assessment will be limited to a 3% annual increase, or the percentage change in
the Consumer Price Index, whichever is lower.
To qualify for Florida's Homestead Exemption benefits, Florida law requires you
to submit your Social Security Number, along with other information regarding your
residency in Hillsborough County.
If you do not wish to submit this information electronically, you may file in person
or you may complete the printable
on our website, then fax (813-276-8946), mail or bring it to any
of our five offices on or before March 1.
Once you have completed the application, you will need to click FINISH and SUBMIT
to end the online process. An email with a receipt will be sent to your email address.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact your Property
Appraiser's Office at 813-272-6100.
