What should I know before I schedule my appointment?

We are currently open to the public, however appointments are strongly recommended, please send an email to appointments@stpao.org with the answers to the questions below and we can get you scheduled. You will need a copy of your driver’s license or your voter’s registration card and your cash sale deed.

 

  1. What is the address for the property?
  2. When did you purchase the home?
    • Did you sell a home in the same year?
    • Did you have a homestead exemption anywhere else at that time?

  3. Does everyone who is on the Cash Sale Deed (title) live in the home?
    • If the house was purchased by you and your spouse and you were married at the time of the purchase, only one of you needs to be present to apply for the homestead exemption.
    • If the house was purchased by more than one individual and you were not married at the time of the purchase, all who reside in the home need to be present to get the full benefit of the homestead exemption possible.
