Homestead Exemption Outreach

September 13, October 11, November 8 and December 13

Floridians know that something unique about living in a state where so many people love to vacation is the Homestead Exemption filed for your property taxes. Although this exemption only needs to be filed once for each property and will then carry over annually, it is important for first-time filers to know the requirements and deadlines for this tax exemption that can significantly reduce their property tax.

Staff from the Palm Beach County Property Appraiser’s Office, Division of Education Services, will be on hand at the Jupiter Community Center throughout the fall to help residents submit their Homestead Exemption applications and answer any property valuation questions. The sessions will be held at the Jupiter Community Center from 1:30 to 2:30 pm on the second Wednesday of each month from September through December.

Applications for Homestead Exemptions are accepted by mail or in person at any time throughout the year, but in order for the exemption to be considered for the upcoming tax year, the application must be received by March 1 of the qualifying year.
