The deadline to apply for property tax exemptions is approaching.
According to the Clay County property appraiser office, the deadline to apply for a property tax exemption is March 1, 2023.
If you plan to apply for a homestead exemption, you must have legal or equitable title to the property as of Jan. 1, 2023. You’ll also need to provide at least two documents to establish proof of permanent residency.
You can use your updated driver’s license or identification card, voter registration card, vehicle registration, utility bill, or the like as proof of residency. You’ll also need the Social Security number of everyone applying, including your spouse.
If you are not a U.S. citizen, you’ll need to provide a copy of your permanent resident card, also known as a green card. Call the property appraiser office if you don’t have permanent residence status.
Please note that manufactured or mobile home owners will also need their title or registration.
There are a few ways to apply:
- Property Appraiser office
County Administration Building, 2nd floor
Green Cove Springs, FL 32043

1518 Park Avenue
Orange Park, FL 32073

Additionally, if they grant the exemption, you’ll see it on the property appraiser office website. The exemption will automatically renew each January, and you’ll get a notice in the mail. If your eligibility changes, you must notify the property appraiser.
