Did you purchase a new home for your primary residence in 2014? If so, it is important you visit your local property appraiser's website or office such as the Seminole County Property Appraiser. Homestead exemption can save you money each year by filing this exemption, along with any other exemptions you and your family may qualify for. The deadline to file is March 1, 2015, and the application is available on here for Seminole County residents.

For those that will be purchasing a home in 2015 as your primary residents be aware that you too can qualify to save money by filing this exemption once you have closed on your new home. The changes will go into effect after applying on the tax bill issued in November of 2016. If the home already has the homestead exemption you will still need to apply to receive the discount.

Below is the list of local property appraiser's online applications and more information on where you live.
