The Lee County Florida Homestead Exemption Deadline is coming up for new homeowners. If you purchased or moved into a new primary residence in 2010 you have until March 1 to file for the special tax breaks available for full-time residents. Please note that if you already have the homestead exemption you do not have to reapply - it will renew automatically.
Veterans, widows and widowers are eligible for some other discounts in addition to the standard homestead exemption. If any of these apply make sure you apply for these discounts as well.
