Homestead Exemption

What is the homestead exemption?

The Florida homestead exemption is an exemption that can reduce the taxable value of your home by as much as $50,000. It’s offered based on your home’s assessed value and offers exemptions within certain value limits. Specifically:

  • For the first $50,000 in assessed value of your home, up to $25,000 in value is exempted. This exemption applies to all property taxes, including those related to your school district.
  • You pay full taxes on any value between $25,000 and $50,000.
  • For any assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000, an additional $25,000 is eligible for exemption, but this exemption does not apply to school district taxes.
  • For value above $75,000, you pay full taxes.
