Residents who have applied for the 2020 Low-Income Senior Exemption, but have not yet provided the supporting income documentation, still have plenty of time to do so. Many residents have contacted our office concerned about having the necessary paperwork in time as the IRS has extended the 2019 tax filing deadline. Applicants have until September 18, 2020 to provide our office with a copy of their 2019 Income Tax Return Form 1040 or SSA-1099, as well as any additional supporting documentation for their exemption application.
Our office will be mailing Senior Exemption receipts in mid-June to all residents who have completed their application along with income verification. Any exemption applications approved after this mailing will show on the 2020 TRIM (proposed tax) Notice mailed by our office in August.
During these uncertain times, all communication with our office can be handled via email, fax, phone, or by USPS mail. Residents can email any documentation directly to our Customer Service Department at CSEmgmt@BCPA.net or fax to (954) 357-6188. If you prefer to mail your information, our mailing address is Broward County Property Appraiser, Attn: Customer Service, 115 S Andrews Avenue, Room # 111, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301.
Once it is safe to do so, our office will return to our regular schedule of visiting communities to assist with filing for exemptions and answering any questions residents may have. In the meantime, we are always here to help. Please do not hesitate to contact our office directly at (954) 357-6830 or email me at MartyKiar@BCPA.net.
