Welcome to the Sarasota County Property Appraiser’s online homestead exemption application. When you apply for the homestead exemption, you can also apply for other personal exemptions such as widows, widowers, blind, disability and service connected disability.

In order to file online, the property you wish to file on must reflect ownership in your name. Please allow our office 30 days from your closing to process the deed and ownership change.


  • Married couples filing for homestead exemption must file at the same time and complete the application in the same session.
  • Upon submitting your application, print or save a copy of your submitted application as your receipt. In order to print, you must have Adobe Reader installed on your computer.
  • Should our office need additional information to process your application, a Hold Notice form will also print a list of any items you are required to provide to us in order to complete your application.

Let’s get started!
