Property Tax Laws In Florida Are Complicated

80% of Florida homeowners are overpaying their property taxes!

Errors on the county tax rolls and oversights with your Homestead filing can cost you thousands of dollars in extra taxes each year. The laws are complicated and, unfortunately, only the very basics are explained during the process of buying or selling a home.

Florida Homeowners Overpaying Property Taxes

Florida Homeowners That Don't File For Portability

How is this happening?

Florida has complicated property tax laws commonly referred to as the "Homestead" laws. When you are involved in a closing there are a few important things that need to be addressed. You may have heard of "Filing for Homestead" and the "Standard Exemption" but there is MUCH more to it than that, especially when you are selling your home. Some issues, if not identified and fixed before closing, will result in you having a much higher property tax bill on your next home.

What should I do about it?

A Homestead Check™ is a property tax analysis that identifies problems with your Homestead Filing and exactly how much money they are costing you. It looks for Market and Assessed Value Errors, unclaimed Portability Savings, whether you missed one of the 30+ Exemptions, and if your Homestead Exemption is currently in place. Your report will contain step-by-step instructions for correcting any issues it finds. If you still need help the Homestead Counselors and Doctors are available with solutions.

Did you know?

You could have hundreds of thousands in portability savings waiting to be claimed!
