Property owners who are 65 years of age as of January 1st and also meet the Homestead Exemption requirements may qualify for an Additional Senior Exemption if they meet the household income limitation. The annual household income limitation is "Adjusted Gross Income" as defined by the Internal Revenue Code. This income limitation is adjusted annually for cost of living changes. Due to the income limitation, this exemption must be applied for annually by March 1st and your proof of income must be supplied to us no later than June 1st.
This exemption was adopted by the City of Macclenny and the Board of County Commissioners. If granted, you would receive up to an additional $50,000 exemption on these two taxing authorities. If you should have any questions regarding this exemption please do not hesitate to contact our office.
