We just signed a contract on a home and are due to close the end of the month.

Should I try to move the closing up in order to be able to file in time for the Homestead Exemption deadline March 2? I'm not sure the deed could even get recorded in enough time.

I believe you have to have owned it Jan 1 to qualify for this year.

From what I was told when we filed for the Homestead Exemption Last I 2013:

You can file for the Homestead Exemption any time during the year and the exemption will not be applied till the following year. An example would be when we purchase our home in 2013 and filed for the Homestead Exemption in August. Our property tax bill for 2014 was based upon the value of our property in 2013 and that was an empty lot. The property tax bill for 2015 was based upon our purchase price of the home.

Then of course if you currently own a home, your new tax bill is based on a combination of your old home value and your new home value. All of the forms are available on line and you can fill them out to see what you will be paying next year.

Hope it helps...
