What if I miss the deadline for filing for a homestead exemption?

You may file for a homestead exemption up to one year after the delinquency date – usually Feb. 1. If you are 65 or older or disabled, you must apply for the exemption no later than one year from your 65th birthday or one year after the delinquency date, whichever is later.

Effective September 1, 2017, property owners have up to two years after the delinquency date to file for a homestead exemption.
