Welcome to the Volusia County Property Appraiser Website

We are now accepting 2020 homestead applications online!

Those who owned a home in Volusia County on or before December 31, 2019, may now file for a 2020 homestead exemption using the homestead exemption online application.

To be eligible for homestead exemption, you must be a permanent resident of Florida.

Please have the following information available for all applicants:

  • 1. Social Security number, Date of Birth, Date of Occupancy of the property, Marital Status and Phone Number.
    • The Property Appraiser's website is a secure system for receiving this confidential information. If you would rather give us this information in person, please come see us at one of our four office locations.
  • 2. Valid Florida drivers license or Florida identification card reflecting homestead address.
  • 3. Florida vehicle tag number and/or voters registration reflecting homestead address.
  • 4. If you or your spouse receives a residency based exemption or benefit on any other property in another state you will need to provide proof that the exemption has been removed.
