Homestead Exemption online filing
Welcome to Homestead Exemption online filing. My office is pleased to provide this service to new homeowners in Palm Beach County.

Homestead Exemption can provide significant property tax savings, and this interactive system will walk you through the qualifications and application process. Many other exemptions are also available through our office. At this time, we ask that qualified seniors, disabled veterans and other disabled persons visit us in person to file for those additional exemptions.

Important Message to E-filers Regarding Portability
Portability allows Florida residents with a previous Homestead Exemption to transfer part of their "Save Our Homes" tax savings to their new residential property in Florida.

If you qualify for Portability, we will automatically send you a Portability Transfer Form for you to complete and return. Please use this online system to apply for Homestead Exemption. The Portability application will accompany your receipt once your homestead application has been approved.
