Attention Florida residents, there is still time to file for Florida Homestead Exemption! Homestead Exemption is reserved for Florida residents. You must own, not lease, the property and it must be your permanent residence as of January 1st of the tax year to qualify.
What is considered a permanent residence?
There is no time calculation to a permanent residence, no specific number of days, weeks, or months spent in the home to qualify. The Palm Beach County Property Appraiser Exemption Services website defines the permanent residence as the address listed on your voter’s registration card, driver’s license or ID, the place where you register your cars and file your income tax.
