The Broward County Property Appraiser's Office will be offering its services at City Hall the fourth Thursday of every month, starting on February 26 through October 22, 2009. Appraisers will be available from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. and will assist with Homestead, Senior and other property tax exemption applications, as well as answer questions on property taxes.
The deadline for filing for 2009 Homestead, Senior and other exemptions is March 1, 2009. If you have moved in 2009, you can also file for 2010 at this location.
Documents required to file a Homestead Exemption include:
· A current Florida driver's license or Florida identification card, and
· A current voter registration card or declaration of domicile
· Non-US citizens must also provide proof of permanent residency.
Qualified residents 65 years of age or older as of January 1, 2009 may also apply for the additional Senior Exemption. Eligible seniors must have a total household adjusted gross income not to exceed $24,916. Documents required for the Senior Exemption include a 2008 income tax return or, if one does not file income taxes, a copy of the 2008 Social Security 1099 Form.
