But, there is an additional exemption, if they also are over 65 and have an income of less than about $30,000. This additional exemption must be applied for every year to verify the income requirement.
Just to clarify: That is the adjusted gross income, not your total income.

I think you can claim at any time but you will not get the exemption until the next year.

Unfortunately age does have something to do with it in Lake County. When I called them, they said one of the people have to be 65 or older to apply for the senior exemption in Lake County.

You can claim the exemption as soon as the home becomes your primary residence. Age to make the claim has no bearing on it.

that is only for the low income exemption - under $30,000 adjusted gross income. There is no other "senior" exemption.

Homestead exemption has nothing to do with your age - you can legally only claim one state as your homestead you must live there 183 days a year.

You need to calculate which state has the best homestead exemption. Also check your property tax bills of both states to determine which one is best for you tax wise. In Fl you can’t claim homestead unless your are on your 2nd year living here have a FL drivers license.
