If you bought a home in Florida in 2018, you likely qualify for a homestead exemption of up to $50,000. That means that your property tax will be based on your home’s assessed value, minus the amount of your exemption (up to $50,000). That can mean big savings.
Of course, you must meet certain criteria set forth by the state of Florida, but most homeowners who can count their Florida home as their primary residence as of January 1, 2019 will qualify.
This year, both Duval & St. Johns County allow homeowners to file online. For complete requirements and details, follow the appropriate link below:
