Homestead Exemption Online Filing
Welcome to Homestead
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 Ownership
The E File process now allows those who have recently purchased a property to
file for homestead exemption, even if the deed has not been recorded and/or uploaded into
our database. Simply begin the process by requesting a PIN, and follow the simple instructions.
Please know your homestead exemption application will be in a pending status until your deed is
recorded and transferred into our database. When this occurs, your application will be submitted
automatically and reviewed for processing.
Important Message to E Filers Regarding Portability
You may also file for portability using this application. Portability is
an additional tax savings to residents moving from one home to another within the State
of Florida. At the end of the homestead exemption E File application, you will be asked if you wish
to file for portability.
