Money Saving Tips and More....

Did you buy a home after January 1, 2019 in Broward County Florida? Take advantage of the tax savings you are entitled to with a Homestead Exemption. Do not miss out on any savings you may be entitled to!

NOTE: my office is not affiliated with the Broward County Appraiser's office and you must contact them for further information about your Homestead Exemption (


If you purchased a new home after January 1, 2019, you may pre-file now for tax year 2020 Homestead and other exemptions. The timely filing period for Homestead Exemption for 2020 is March 2, 2019 through March 1, 2020. The absolute deadline to LATE FILE for any 2020 exemption -- if you miss the March 1 timely filing deadline -- is September 18, 2020. State law (Sec. 196.011(8), Fla. Stat.) does not allow late filing for exemptions after this date, regardless of any good cause reason for missing the late filing deadline.

Broward County property taxes for 2018 are due by March 31st, 2019. Did your taxes increase over the prior year? As per Broward County officials, the most common reasons are:

  • Loss of homestead exemption or other change in exemption status
  • Increase in assessed property value due to increase in market value
  • Increase in index tied to the Save Our Homes cap, 2.1% this year
  • Increase in millage rate by one or more taxing authorities
If you have any questions about your property taxes contact the Broward County Call Center at (954) 831-4000.

And if you are in need of an appraisal of your home by a qualified, private appraiser, contact Jennifer's Appraisals, Inc. now!

Broward County property owners, last week, like many of you, I received my notice of proposed property taxes for 2018 (TRIM Notice) from the Broward County property appraiser.

Did you know? Low-Income Seniors who maintain long-term residency may be entitled to additional tax relief. The cities of Cooper City, Pembroke Pines, Hollywood, Miramar, Dania Beach, Hallandale Beach, Oakland Park, Pompano Beach, Sunrise, and Weston, have all approved an additional exemption for low-income seniors. Contact the Broward County office at (954) 357-6830 for more information.

IMPORTANT:  The deadline to file for any exemption, or to file an appeal of your value as reflected on your TRIM notice, is September 18, 2018. Visit the Broward County Property Appraiser online at or call the Value Adjustment Board directly at (954) 357-7205. 

*Please note* I am passing on this information to you but my office is not affiliated with the County Property Appraiser's office. However, if you do need a local, private appraiser to appraise your home, please contact me to discuss.  Thank you!
