The owner of record information shown on our website is how it is assessed on the Certified Tax Roll for that year. The Property Appraiser’s Office typically has the final tax roll certification completed in the beginning of October. Pasco County public records will reflect ownership changes and our official records are updated when we receive change of ownership notifications from the Property Appraiser’s Office.
We are notified by the Property Appraiser of ownership changes throughout the year. If the taxes are unpaid, a duplicate tax notice will be mailed to the new owner. If taxes are delinquent, reminder notices will be mailed to both the new and previous owner.
Homestead Exemptions are filed with the Pasco County Property Appraiser’s Office.
Every Florida resident who has legal or beneficial title in equity to real property in the State of Florida, who resides on said real property, and in good faith makes the same his or her permanent residence to the exclusion of all other places on or before January 1st of the year application is made, shall be entitled to an exemption from all taxation, except non-ad valorem taxes, up to the assessed valuation of $25,000.
Commercial usage of property is not subject to this exemption.
The Property Appraiser’s office processes Homestead Applications year round. All applications must be filed with their office no later than the close of business on March 1st of the year in which the exemption is sought.
