Just 5 Days Left to File For Florida Homestead Exemption for Property Tax

You just have until the end of this week February 29th, to apply for a Homestead Exemption, and others, for the 2008 property tax year. Depending on where you live this could amount to several hundreds of dollars. With the recently passed Amendment 1, even more money could be at stake. So if you bought a home last year that will be your permanent residence here or you are now making Florida your permanent home, you may want to get homestead status for your home. Your tax advisor or attorney can give you good advice concerning whether or not filing for the exemption is in your best interest. Usually it is, but not always. Consult your experts when in doubt.

If you wish to read more information about the exemptions that are available or find contact information for your particular Florida county, go to my webpage at: and then click on the button for County Property Appraisers. All of them have information concerning exemptions and contact information. Do not delay. Time is rapidly running out!
