Report Exemption Abuse

Homestead Exemption is a benefit for homeowners who live in Florida and maintain it as their primary residence. Non-compliance and abuse of the Homestead Exemption law financially affects all taxpayers. If you are aware of anyone in Hillsborough County that is improperly receiving a Homestead Exemption and you believe they are abusing the exemption by renting their home, claiming a second residence benefit elsewhere or the home is vacant, we urge you to contact our Exemption Compliance Department:

Also, if you feel you have reliable information of any religious, charitable, educational entities or any other property that is claiming an exemption they are not entitled, please contact our Exemption Compliance Department.
