Broward County Property Appraiser Marty Kiar has some important information in his latest newsletter for veterans. Veterans receiving the full exemption for service-connected total and permanent disability may be eligible for a refund. A recent change in Florida law allows for certain disabled veterans to receive a property tax refund. While the refund requirements are very specific, some property owners receiving the Full Veteran’s Exemption for Total and Permanent Service-Connected Disability may be eligible for a refund on their new homesteaded property’s taxes.
2021 Property Exemptions – It Is Not Too Late to Apply. While the timely deadline to apply for any 2021 exemption was March 1, applicants can late file until September 20, 2021. If you both owned and made the property your permanent residence as of January 1, 2021, you can still apply for 2021 Homestead Exemption and any other exemptions.
The absolute deadline for applying for any 2021 exemption is September 20, 2021.
