To ease the burden on property owners, we automatically renew property tax exemptions. This automatic renewal helps to ensure that you do not lose your exemption simply because you failed to renew.

If you had a property tax exemption or agricultural land classification in 2018, you should have received at least one of the four renewal cards listed below:

• The WHITE card is for Homestead Exemption and other exemptions like widow, widower, disability, veteran, and senior citizen.

• The GREEN card is for Agricultural Land Classification.

• The YELLOW card is for property that is being used for tax-exempt purposes.

• The BLUE card is for Tangible Personal Property valued no more than $25,000.

As long as the Tangible Personal Property remains at $25,000 or less, you are not required to file a Tangible Personal Property Return, form (DR405).

If your value exceeds $25,000, you also received a Tangible Personal Property Tax Return that must be completed and returned. The form is also downloadable from our website at

If you are still eligible for the exemption or agricultural land classification, do not return the card.

Exemptions and agricultural land classifications are not transferable

• If you are a new property owner, you must submit a new application by March 1, 2019. (The Tangible Personal Property Tax Exemption deadline is April 1, 2019).

My staff and I hope that you all have a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019!
