Sales Tax:

  • Broward and Palm Beach Counties 6%
  • Dade County 6.5%

Income Tax:

  • Florida has no personal income tax

Homestead Exemption:

  • Florida residents who own and live in a home as of January 1 of any given year are given an exemption of $25,000 off the assessed value of the home. You must file for the exemption with the County Property Appraiser between January 1 and March 1 for the first time. It will renew automatically on an annual basis. The county will send you the renewal by mail. No action is necessary by you.

Property Tax:

  • In Broward County, call (954) 357-6830 for County Property Appraiser's office
  • In Palm Beach County, call (407) 276-1250 for County Property Appraiser's office

The formula for figuring out the amount of taxes on a home in these two counties is full of variables. An example would be:

Take the Homestead Exemption and subtract it from from the appraised value (this is set by the property appraiser)

Take the appraised value and using the tax rate take the last 3 digits off your appraised value. (If the home appraised for $250,000, than the number you would work with would be 250)

Multiply 250 by the tax rate. Now you have an estimate of the property tax.

Sounds simple, however, you need to know which governmental agencies are taxing your property. There may be as many as 10 different agencies taxing your home. This is where we can help. Before you buy we will go over all the aspects of the financial aspects of your purchase.

Complete our brief questionnaire, and we will send you our relocation package, or any other Fort Lauderdale real estate information you are looking for.
