Appealing a Denial of Your Homestead Exemption Application
The Property Appraisers of each County in the State of Florida are required to notify homeowners and taxpayers by July 1st if they plan to deny their application for a homestead exemption for that tax year. The law allows the taxpayer 30 days to file a petition to the county Value Adjustment Board.
If the Value Adjustment Board denies your petition, you have only 15 days in which to file an appeal to the circuit court. If you do not want to file a petition to the VAB, you can file an action directly in the circuit court, but such a lawsuit must be filed within 60 days of certification of the tax roll.
