Disaster Relief Credit for Homestead Properties
Owners of homestead property, damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Hermine, Matthew or Irma, may be eligible to receive a tax credit on a portion of their 2019 property taxes.
To qualify, the homestead property must have been uninhabitable for at least 30 days and affected owners must file a sworn application for Abatement of Taxes for Homestead Residential Improvements (DR-463) along with supporting documentation to the Property Appraiser. If approved, the Property Appraiser will issue an official written statement to the Tax Collector, who will calculate and issue the credit.
Applications may be submitted via mail, fax, email or in-person. The filing deadline is March 1, 2019. For more information, see Section 197.318, Florida Statutes.
