Welcome, you are about to E-file for your exemption.
If you e-file an application, you will always receive correspondence via email from our office once the application process is completed.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN, PLEASE NOTE:
- Recommended: Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge web browser; desktop computer rather than a mobile device.
- To qualify, your Martin County home must be your permanent residence.
- Florida law does not allow dual exemptions. Penalties are harsh when discovered.
- You and/or your spouse must not receive a residency-based exemption or benefit on any other property in Florida or another State.
- If you own property in another State, verify with the local assessor that you are not receiving a residency benefit. If you are, it must be cancelled, and evidence of cancelation must be provided in order to qualify for a Martin County exemption.
- Please completely finish the application once you start the Homestead Exemption process.
Property taxes may be affected with change in ownership. When buying real estate property, you should not assume that property taxes will remain the same. Whenever there is a change in ownership, the assessed value of the property may reset to full market value, which could result in higher property taxes. Please use our tax estimator to approximate your new property taxes. Homestead exemptions and agricultural classifications are not transferable to the new owner. You must apply for your own exemptions and agricultural classifications.
DURING THIS HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION E-FILE APPLICATION PROCESS, YOU MAY ALSO APPLY FOR OTHER RELATED TAX EXEMPTIONS WHICH WILL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTS.
