Property Tax Exemption Applications:
Florida law requires an applicant to have title to the property and meet all eligibility requirements as of January 1 of the application year.
The deadline to file a timely 2024 tax year application for all ad valorem [property] tax exemptions, assessment reductions and classifications is March 1, 2024.
Application forms may be filed at our main office in Green Cove Springs (located on the 2nd floor of the Administration Building), at our branch office in Orange Park (located inside the Tax Collector’s Office at 1518 Park Avenue) or by email to email@example.com. Appointments are not required or necessary.
Once the initial application has been filed, granted exemptions will display on the office’s website and Notice of Proposed Property Taxes. Timely filed applications will be processed by July 1.
The homestead exemption will be automatically renewed each January and a renewal notice will be mailed to you by February 1. If you still live in the home and qualify for the exemption, no action is required – keep the renewal notice as your receipt and continue to enjoy the benefits of lower taxes. It is your responsibility to notify the Property Appraiser if your eligibility for exemptions has changed.
